Legion Way is a roadway/urban design project kicking off Olympia’s Downtown Strategic Plan in an effort to revitalize their historic downtown core. KPG redeveloped one of Downtown’s main intersections into a decorative raised intersection, focusing on safe pedestrian and vehicular access, placemaking, and heritage tree preservation, by incorporating innovative technologies while celebrating the historic nature of downtown Olympia.
Happy 31st Birthday to us! It has been a great 31 years, and we are looking forward to many more. To celebrate our birthday, we are setting a goal to collect 1990 non-perishable food items to donate in our Food Frenzy event this year with @foodlifeline! We will continue to share updates on our goal over the next few months, who thinks we can do it?!

In 2019 our Landscape Architecture team completed the Naden Park & Greenway Master Plan vision in the City of Kent. The goal was to create a “central park” where the community will be able to gather for festivals, farmers markets, or other events. One of the unique features of this project is the amphitheater space that will be able to feature both free and ticketed events in the future!

Happy National Employee Appreciation Day to all of our KPGers!
