A recreational urban trail runs through the city of Fredericton, New Brunswick with little interaction between adjacent buildings or the parallel riverfront of the Saint John River. As the two de?ning landscape elements extending throughout the city, the river and greenway, elements designed to link the two will become part of the same city-wide language. The potential for connections creates an opportunity for new public spaces: architecture which can extend the trail to physically bridge and support water and land recreation. The design will culminate with two reciprocal sites along opposite edges of the river that provide both functional and experiential public spaces for recreational river and trail users. The strategies made to enhance these formerly neglected or private spaces are designed with the intent that any point along the vast trail network could be similarly adapted.
