The Steelman Park Streambank Restoration Project has enhanced and stabilized eroding streambanks. This has improved water quality and the stream itself within the park as well as protect park infrastructure. The project was a collaborative effort initiated by the City's Water Resources and Parks and Recreation departments.
Construction was completed in the spring 2018. As a component of the project, vegetation was planted along the streambanks. Typically, it takes three growing seasons for vegetation to become completely established and evident.
Restoration has been completed on the section of stream between Highland Avenue and Gregory Street, as well as the northern branch near Haywood Street.
