The State Pier renovation project at Arnolds Park Amusement Park will create a plaza connecting two phases of the boardwalk project currently underway and creating a focal point at the terminus of Arnolds Park Promenade, completed July 2019.

The 5,500 square foot pedestrian plaza will feature a large fountain and reflecting pool below three stainless steel sail sculptures, precast concrete benches/amphitheater seating, landscape beds and decorative paving surrounded by a custom LED hand rail. Dramatic lighting on the sails and fountain will create a visible landmark that coordinates with the arches of the Promenade.

The plaza itself is a compass, oriented north/south, with a north arrow and a map of the Iowa Great Lakes as decorative elements in the paving.
