Wilder Bluff Park

Shawnee, Kansas


Generous park structures for a growing community incorporating both open and enclosed spaces


SFS, as part of a team, worked extensively with the Shawnee Parks and Recreation Department and community to establish a vision for a new, 40-acre community park in northwestern Shawnee. Park structures planned and designed by SFS include restroom buildings near the primary active park amenities, and a large shelter building to accommodate up to 60 people.


A fireplace structure provides a place for gathering outside of the shelter. The openness of the shelter, along with appropriate lighting, creates a safe and visible space while still feeling enclosed and friendly. The materials used in the structures are durable and maintenance friendly, in addition to being warm, inviting and functional.
