concentrated access points

recreational opportunities water features

river corridor and development interface

Enhancing proposed riparian areas could be done by including additional water features to wetlands that hold water year around. There is also great potential to integrate water features and stormwater swales with adjacent wetlands for improved bioretention and water quality.

Early planning and design with adjacent development in mind will maximize the potential for for this project. The concentrated access points ideally should encompass not only the river corridor but also the future development adjacent to the corridor. Planning with a holistic approach will most certainly be to the benefit of all involved, and most importantly the community of ogden.

park area

overlook

kayak park One of the most prominent up and coming recreational attractions is kayaking. Kayak parks are popping up all over the nation by public demand. Kayaking attracts not only the kayakers, but also local events generated around the sport. This creates great potential for attracting tourism to the river as a sports venue.

viewing platforms and expanded interpretation Viewing platforms are great opportunities to visually connect to the riparian areas and would ideally be integrated with adjacent development. Restoring the river to healthy function will dramatically improve habitat quality, displaying exceptional areas for biodiversity that allow for wildlife viewing. There is also great potential to expand educational interpretation to educate the public on this dynamic landscape that changes throughout the year.

riparian areas and stormwater interface

backwater wetland

Managing stormwater from adjacent development is critical to protecting the water quality of the river. Conveying stormwater to vegetated swales and wetlands will increase bioretention and detain pollutants before entering the river. Permeable surfaces allow for water to penetrate through the surface and absorb directly back into the ground reducing downstream impacts and improving water quality.

notes: view corridors are opened to river by removing waste infill material, creating a more natural bank edge large specimen trees along the river’s edge are preserved preserved native vegetation at rivers edge

regraded slopes are planted with a mix of native trees, shrubs and perennials
