Governor’s Park and Independence Playground

Laurel, DE

The first project to be implemented from the Stormwater Master Plan prepared by ForeSite was the area for Governor’s Park and Independence Playground.  The design featured a constructed wetland to treat run-off from a future park and a bioswale to treat approximately 3 acres of upstream impervious area.  In keeping with our design philosophy, we looked to challenge the benefits of the stormwater feature and designed a tidally connected fish pond between the constructed wetland and it’s outfall to Broad Creek.
