South LA Wetland Park
Beautiful Park on Former Brownfield Site
This nine-acre public nature park and sustainable stormwater treatment wetland was constructed on a former MTA Brownfield redevelopment site. This multi-benefit project includes riparian habitat, trails, boardwalks, viewing platforms, outdoor classroom, educational signage, passive recreational space, and picnic benches.
Psomas designed treatment facilities that include diversion from a major existing subsurface storm drain, structural pretreatment, high and low flow pump station, and a 3-cell, 4.5-acre treatment wetland. The wetland treats a portion of the runoff from the contributing 525-acre watershed and uses that runoff to sustain the wetland.
