Martha Wellman Park

Applying the Blueprint philosophy that promotes the integration of both public and private stakeholder interests in working toward a common goal – to support the sustainable use of natural resources, this much needed stormwater facility was designed to function as a park as well. Recognizing that highways coexist with other land uses and that cost effective approaches to storm water management can yield watershed protection, even improvements that protect the health, safety and welfare of the residents and provide stormwater and groundwater quality monitoring.

Features:

  • 23.5-acre park site
  • 15.3-acre pond: 70% of pond’s capacity provides retrofit treatment
  • 4,000-foot paved multi-use trail
  • Seven refuge areas with benches and receptacles
  • Lamppost lighting
  • Decorative landscaping

The park is named for Martha Wellman, original Economic and Environmental Consensus Committee Member who served on CCSW Community Representative Group.
