Liberty Lands

Intro
The stormwater management at Liberty Lands, will lead to a reduction of stormwater runoff to the combined sewer system in a neighborhood that suffers from flooding and basement back-ups. The vegetation that is planted also increases community amenity and greening.
Project Description

Office of Watersheds funded the development of a master plan for Liberty Lands, a private park located in Northern Liberties that provides stormwater management while addressing community objectives for the park. The first phase of implementation was a performance stage backed by a vegetated stormwater management area that manages runoff from the park and an adjacent street.
