Project Description

This integrated system uses a complete treatment train approach with permeable pavers, bioretention and a rainwater harvesting system to create a closed loop, self-sustaining green site. The project excelled in its community engagement, using interpretive signage and the development of a mobile app where users can find curated facts on the park’s green infrastructure elements, and take a self-guided walking tour. The park now serves as a well-utilized public gathering space for community members.
