Title

Old Mission Creek Restoration at Bohnett Park

Body

In 2003, the Creeks Division completed a restoration project along Old Mission Creek at Bohnett Park. The project included the construction of stairs and two creek crossings to improve access to the park. Creek banks were reconstructed to reduce erosion and improve park aesthetics. 

Non-native vegetation was removed and replaced with native plants to help improve riparian habitat. Two bioswales were constructed to improve water quality and expand wetland habitat.

Additional park improvements included new overhead lights and fencing, sitting benches, picnic tables, and trash cans.
