Two Rivers Resort & Casino
Spokane Indian Reservation, Washington


Landscape Master Plan

In 1999 the Spokane Indian Tribe selected a design team to perform master planning, programming, schematic design, and a cultural study for a 97-room hotel and expanded casino. Located at the historic confluence of the Columbia and Spokane rivers, this site was blessed with great natural attributes. The landscape design reflects the various ecosystems present on the Spokane Indian Reservation in northeastern Washington. The planting concept will transition from deciduous forest to the semiarid plateaus commonly found in this region. Water will play an important role in the overall concept of the landscape master plan. A dryland stream will greet visitors as the approach the resort from the east, merging into an awe-inspiring waterfall, reminiscent of the fishing areas of Kettle Falls and other significant Spokane Tribal fisheries. Terraced pool and spa patios will step down to the natural beach to provide easy access to the resort for the many river users. The Spokane Tribe has postponed development to continue feasibility and funding strategies.
