This project aims to improve water quality and natural habitat in West Hickman Creek. The dam in West Hickman Creek, in Veterans Park near the walking bridge, will be removed as part of this project. The creek channel will be restored using natural materials to stabilize the banks and reduce erosion. The riparian buffer, the greenery that surrounds and protects the creek, will be protected and enhanced.
Additionally, streamside paths, creek access points and an outdoor classroom will be constructed to encourage people to experience and explore West Hickman Creek.
