Puyallup Library, Puyallup

JGM served as the landscape architect /site planner for this new public library, the first building in Puyallup ’s new civic campus. The center of this new civic campus was Puyallup ’s historic Pioneer Park .

In order to establish a cohesive pedestrian environment, JGM converted an existing street into a vibrant pedestrian corridor. This created a civic plaza that became the “front door” for the library and future campus buildings. JGM integrated existing park features and plantings into the plan, achieving a seamless transition between the new construction and the adjacent park.

The wide promenade was paved with integrally colored concrete that complimented the library’s masonry colors. Trees were used to strengthen the pedestrian system while new pedestrian lights matched the historic character of the existing park lights. A raised diagonal walkway was created to link the community and new parking lot with the library; this walkway also serves as a traffic-calming feature within the parking lot.

The project scope included a schematic plan with hardscape, planting and irrigation design. Craig Lewis, ASLA, was the project manager.
