Food, Wine & Waterfront Amenities Highlighted

Kennewick, Wash. – New signage at Columbia Gardens Wine & Artisan Village showcases the wineries, food, art and recreation amenities to help guests find their favorite places or activities.

Port of Kennewick contractor Poland & Sons recently installed a large monument-style sign and several directional-panel signs to help with branding and wayfinding. The monument sign is along Columbia Drive near the Cedar Street entrance to Columbia Gardens and consists of Corten steel, real stone and red signboards.

In addition, there are three directional signs within Columbia Gardens and two along the Duffy’s Pond pathway near Clover Island Drive. The directional signs are Corten steel with arrows indicating the way to food, art, wine, recreation and Clover Island.

Meier Architecture | Engineering designed the port’s signs to complement City of Kennewick signage in Columbia Park, Columbia Drive and Historic Downtown Kennewick. The port’s signs incorporate the same Kennewick “red” identified within the Tri-Cities’ regional wayfinding plan.

Located on the Columbia River in historic downtown Kennewick, Columbia Gardens Wine & Artisan Village provides a scenic gathering place to enjoy the best of a mixed-use, pedestrian-friendly, master-planned community. Port of Kennewick created Columbia Gardens to bring renewed vibrancy to Kennewick’s Historic Waterfront District. Currently, there are six food trucks, four winery tasting rooms, two wine production facilities, three public artwork installations, and a paved waterfront path at Columbia Gardens. And last month, food truck tenant Swampy’s BBQ broke ground on a restaurant and commissary kitchen building at Columbia Gardens.


Port of Kennewick is an economic development entity focused on developing assets to create sustainable family-wage jobs,
build infrastructure and user-friendly transportation systems, and enhance the quality of life within the port district.
