TOOLBOX Peer Networking: Advancing Equity, Health, and Resiliency with Stormwater Parks

Time: 10:00am - 12:00pm
Date: November 4, 2022
End Date: November 4, 2022

Stormwater parks can help with many challenges that cities and counties face, such as equity, health, and resiliency. Stormwater parks are facilities that provide both stormwater treatment and recreation. They address climate resilience and community health through increasing access to green space and recreation. They can help advance racial equity when built in communities underserved by parks and by supporting Tribal treaty rights. Stormwater parks vary greatly in form, function, and size, so they can work well on a variety of sites. The objective of the session was to show different types of stormwater parks and share knowledge on planning them.
