Stormwater parks enhance communities by treating stormwater and providing recreational opportunities.

PSRC was awarded a Puget Sound National Estuary Program grant by the Puget Sound Partnership and the Environmental Protection Agency to help catalyze the development of new stormwater parks.

The project will:

  • Share lessons learned from already-built stormwater parks
  • Identify opportunities for stormwater park retrofits regionwide
  • Provide technical assistance for the planning of up to four new stormwater parks

The findings from this work will be summarized in a guidance document on planning for stormwater parks.

Jurisdictions interested in receiving technical assistance are encouraged to reach out to PSRC staff.
