Bridge to Bay Musical Parklet
City of Marine City, Michigan
This recently completed project was named after the county wide Bridge-to-Bay Pedestrian Trail System.
Wishbone was thrilled to take part in the development of this parklet. During the planning and design phase of Spring 2019, we began the process of suggesting a ‘feature’ piece of site furniture that would complement the overall layout.
Very soon we settled on our modular, Curved Skyline Bench to lend the project a unique aesthetic without going over budget.
The focus was on a great fit for the space, functionality for all user groups, easy maintenance, and long-term performance. Two of our Skyline Curved benches combine to form a wave shape – kind of like a soundwave!
The entire project was made possible through grant funds through KABOOM! (https://kaboom.org/) and the Play Everywhere challenge which encourages individuals of all ages to incorporate play in their everyday lives.
We were graciously provided these amazing photos of the completed project and ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Here’s some feedback directly from the City:
“The City is extremely pleased with the quality and design of the bench seating and the customer service was outstanding. We have received several compliments from residents regarding the design of the bench, which is a perfect fit for the space!”
