Keith Bird Legacy Park


Meridian City councilman Keith Bird loved flushing pheasants, and that was the inspiration behind this metal sculpture. Keith also enjoyed the speedway (hence the checkerboard pattern inside the reeds) and had a career in the glass business (note the glass accents in the pheasant wings).

The entry sign marks the park with giant pheasant feathers. There’s also an interpretive panel I designed that talks about Keith Bird and his many accomplishments.

Ken McCall is the amazing fabricator who built this 18′ tall sculpture. The uber-talented Matt Grover created the mechanical files from my drawings and was a valuable consultant. The glass accents were fired in Eagle by Melissa Reche at FUSIONS glass studio. Todd Klements at Forge Signworks  created the entry sign and assisted Ken McCall with other details. They are all true craftsmen that I’ve been honored to work with.

Keith Bird Legacy Park is located in the Bainbridge Subdivision in Meridian, Idaho.
