The 230-acre Gene Green Regional Park is a collaborative effort by Harris County Engineering, Harris County Precinct Two and the Harris County Flood Control District as a dual use detention basin and park amenity. The community participated in determining park program elements through a series of public meetings with the design team, a steering committee and public agency staff. The park incorporates stormwater filtering LID techniques in the parking lot and meandering streams dissipate stormwater through native vegetation prior to outfall to Carpenter’s Bayou.
Asakura Robinson Company provided Public Engagement, Conceptual Master Planning and Construction Documents as the Prime Consultant for this unique park which is Harris County’s first park to receive LEED Certification.
