Wetlands Enhancement and Restoration

The purpose of the South Wilmington Wetlands Park is to create a stormwater management facility, restore and enhance existing wetlands, and create a new park for the community. This site was identified by the Southbridge community as an ideal location for a wetlands park in 2006. Since then, the City of Wilmington has been working with other agencies, non-profits, and the Southbridge community to develop a park that incorporates community feedback to address ongoing issues of flooding and contamination.

Wetlands Project Update
Presented at the Soutbridge Civic Association meeting, December 20, 2016


The South Wilmington Wetlands Park will also increase local walkability and recreational opportunities. The most prominent design feature of the site is a wide, ADA accessible boardwalk/on grade pathway through the heart of the park. This pathway will function as a recreational opportunity for local residents as well as visitors that will also allow the Southbridge community to access nearby jobs and retail shopping.
