The team of Harries, Heder and Martino revitalized the Falls as popular destination along the Arizona Canal by utilizing the existing site and structures in new ways. The design exposed the gears and floor of the site’s former hydroelectric plant generator room, which was built early in the 20th century. It also framed an outdoor “room” with the coolness and sound of water by diverting small flows of canal water into two new aqueducts, creating a pair of waterfalls. Paths and sidewalks lead visitors around and under the waterfalls and across a pedestrian bridge to the north bank of the canal. The site also features signs detailing the history and significance of the canals and "green" power in Arizona.
This project was built through a partnership between the City of Phoenix, Salt River Project and the United States Bureau of Reclamation.
