O’Connor Park

Posted by | 0 Comments

This 2 year study initiated in 2013 at the newly constructed O’Connor Park in Mississauga  evaluates the effectiveness of Low Impact Development (LID) features as part of a treatment train.  The inclusion of LID features within the park was identified during this early planning process as an effective means of managing stormwater at the site.  Stormwater on site is managed through LID features including a bioretention cell and permeable pavement in the parking lot as well as a network of infiltration trenches underneath soccer fields.

Case Study

The O’Connor Park site is also grouped with 7 other Public Lands sites for a larger monitoring program.  The sites were grouped together because they are all classified as bioretention features and are located on the same land-use type, but each site was designed and implemented differently making them individually unique. The objectives of this report are to analyze the meteorological conditions and water quantity data of the eight Public Lands sites.
