Implementing a Green Infrastructure Project: The Elk Grove Nature Park
Green infrastructure uses natural processes to filter and slow the flow of stormwater, protecting communities from flooding and restoring waterways. It helps mitigate the impact of climate events, increases public access to green space, and supports public health.

While traditional green infrastructure projects can be expensive and time-intensive, small-scale or quick-build projects can convert both paved and existing underutilized green space into highly functional drought and flood-tolerant landscapes within a few months.

With funding from the National Recreation and Park Association’s Great Urban Parks Campaign, CivicWell supported the Cosumnes Community Services District and Urban Rain Design with community engagement and design review in their process of creating an accessible and inclusive park for community members of all abilities. The Elk Grove Nature Park will use green infrastructure to manage stormwater runoff, provide wildlife habitat, and promote environmental awareness.

At this virtual roundtable, Cosumnes Community Services District Chief of Planning, Design, and Construction Paul Mewton and Urban Rain Design Principal Kevin Perry will dive into the planning, design, and construction of the park. We will also be joined by elected officials Jaclyn Moreno of the Cosumnes Community Services District Board and City of Elk Grove Vice Mayor Darren Suen to share about the value of this green infrastructure project for the local community.
