Project Description

The Green at Parkside is a recently completed, one‐acre community park located in the burgeoning Parkside neighborhood in the northeast quadrant of the District of Columbia. The Green, formally a vacant, compacted‐turf lot that drained to the surrounding catch basins, features a state‐of‐the‐art stormwater management system funded by the District Department of the Environment. The site contains four bioretention facilities that together treat a drainage area of over 60,000 square feet, almost half of which is impervious. In addition, the pervious pavers infiltrate rain that falls directly on the site into tree boxes, and any overflow is conveyed to the bioretention facilities.
