Construction was recently completed for the redesigned and expanded parking lot that serves the lower area of Memorial Park in the City of Wilsonville. The new design, developed by GreenWorks and Wallis Engineering with the City of Wilsonville, implements a new vehicular circulation pattern that better utilizes the space while also enhancing pedestrian access routes through the parking area and to the park.
The new design is also sensitive to mature existing conifer trees in the parking area, many of which were saved and incorporated into the design of the new parking area. The project also features five vegetated stormwater treatment swales that stormwater flows into from the paved areas of the parking area.
Prior to the project, stormwater from the parking area had been piped directly to an adjacent creek. The contractor on the project was Kersey Construction, Inc.
