Sustainable Park Features

The park utilizes sustainable design techniques to generate power, keep the area cool and capture rain water.

  • Solar panels on the park's shade structures will generate 75 kilowatts of power (enough to power 8 to 9 residential homes) to offset the park's lighting and electrical needs

  • Extensive shade - more than 70 percent of the park's surface area will be shaded when its trees and vegetation reach maturity

  • Hard surfaces made with pervious concrete and pavers that reduce heat reflection and allow rainfall to seep through, reducing damaging storm runoff

  • Trees planted with a system that utilizes grates and specially engineered soils to protect roots, minimize compaction and allow ample room for root expansion

  • Immediate access to light rail and bus transit stations, located just feet from the park, encourage pedestrian visitation and use of mass transit - zero parking spaces were built for the park​
