The mid-island residential neighborhood of Harrington was experiencing frequent flooding due to increased stormwater discharges which are negatively impacting surrounding marshlands and tributaries. The Harrington Community Master Plan focused on analyzing existing drainage patterns and determining the origins of point and non-point source stormwater impacts. It was determined that the creation of a regional park would provide needed environmental protection as well as provide the community with increased recreational and cultural amenities. The implementation of this regional greenspace park provided habitat, water quality and flood protection through the creation of enhanced drainage swales and wetlands. Additionally, the plan includes the establishment of a series of open space multi-purpose fields, a live oak preserve, the creation of a series of community gardens, and the restoration of the historic African American School House. A greenway system links the various features throughout the park and provides connections to existing walkways located throughout the neighborhood.
