Julia Davis Park underwent a major upgrade and renovation just in time to celebrate its first one hundred years. The very beginnings of this renovation dates all the way back to 2006, with a vision to transform the area between the rose garden and Zoo Boise into a plaza. Trademark worked closely with Diane Davis Myklegard, the great granddaughter of Tom and Julia Davis, to help make the dreams of this plaza a reality. The Rotary Plaza celebrates the early beginnings of Boise and now provides a central place for people to come together and celebrate.
The plaza features bronze medallions, sandstone elements, and illuminated bollards, which Trademark had the opportunity to fabricate. The bollards are representative of orchards which once resided in this beloved park. The 31 powdercoated steel bollards stand tall, alternating at 48" and 38" tall. Each bollard is sealed with an acrylic topper that protects and proudly displays the historic photographs. From old houses and buildings, to influential figures, each bollard gives a unique platform to showcase the significant historical moments that have happened over the years. Sidewalk paths wind throughout the plaza, guiding children and adults alike from bollard to bollard. Whether you're meeting a friend on your lunch break or taking an evening stroll, the bollards will guide you through the park with their illuminated core and compelling imagery.
