Cole Creek is part of the city’s local floodplain system. The Cole Creek Project focused on the upper portion of the creek from its headwaters south of Sorensen Parkway to Hartman Avenue. Its goals were to stabilize the creek, improve its water quality and enhance the recreational use of Orchard Park
A new walking trail was also constructed along the length of Cole Creek. It is composed of four types of pervious pavements – asphalt, concrete, pavers and crushed brick. Pervious pavement allows water to move through it. Users can learn more about the project and its construction materials via interpretive exhibits at 12 locations. Benches made of recycled materials were placed at four locations, and trash/recycling stations are placed at key locations.
