Environmental Design Group restored features of this popular community park to mitigate stream impacts at the nearby Akron-Canton Airport. The plan called for salvaging and relocating impacted wetland plants and soils, daylighting and restoring the stream and its riparian corridor using natural channel principals, restoring the wetland and modifying the trail system for public access.

Overall, 11-acres of stream, riparian corridor, wetland margins, upland meadow and woodland buffer were restored at the park. Over 1,200 feet of stream was restored, and connections to mature existing wetlands were restored. Over 32,500 trees, shrubs and forbs were planted in addition to specialty seeding for the restoration.
