Grant Park Streambank Repair
Three erosion areas identified in the Grant Park Master Plan are currently being repaired. The high flows of Holes Creek and unstable banks have been an environmental and safety issue for the park. We are happy to be able to improve these areas per the new Master Plan.
Site 1- Grant Park – Nature Play / Nature Nook – Bank Erosion along Holes Creek
Description of Impairment – Approximately 70-80 LF of toe-slope erosion is severely undercutting the stream bank, immediately adjacent to the Nature Play area. The erosion has resulted in a safety hazard, loss of land, and prevents visitors from safely accessing the creek in this location.
Site 7+8 – Grant Park Yellow Trail Maintenance
Description of Impairment – An existing concrete slab and severe bank erosion at Site 8 has threatened the viability of the yellow trail and its future crossing over Holes Creek. As a result, high flows do not have a defined flow path connection to the floodplain or the high-flow relief channel associated with the oxbow at downstream Site 7. (updated 6-2-2021)
