A bridge may seem an unlikely location for a pedestrian plaza, but that’s exactly what Bixby city planners did on the 2,000 linear foot bridge that crosses the Arkansas River and connects the north and south sides of the city. But now the new plaza is not only connecting residents, it is also building community. Landscape architecture firm PDG designed the bridge plaza with shade structures, lighting, lounge seating, benches, tables and chairs for picnics, and enough room for musical events and food trucks. Landscaping outlines the pedestrian path along the bridge and adds a park-like feel to a special, innovative gathering place ripe for Instagram moments.
