Tend to landscaping needs, and eat burgers and hot dogs on the Confluence Land Bridge with hosts Confluence and the City of Vancouver. Designed by internationally recognized architect Johnpaul Jones of Jones & Jones, the site was dedicated in 2008. The Land Bridge is an earth-covered pedestrian bridge, arching over Hwy 14, reconnecting historic Fort Vancouver with the Columbia River. European and Native American cultures once converged at this Columbia River site, where the Hudson's Bay Company stood as the first European trading post in the Pacific Northwest. Learn about the site's indigenous plants as you walk along the Land Bridge and enjoy Native American artist, Lillian Pitt’s, works along the bridge that highlight the deep, significant contributions indigenous people make to this place.
