Nitsch Engineering provided planning, land surveying, permitting, and civil engineering services for the new 1.6-acre park that provides the community with open space, restored landscaping, 1,000 feet of walking paths, a new Veterans Monument, a parking lot, and a new boardwalk with an overlook of the adjacent South River. We worked closely with the Town of Marshfield, landscape architect, and other project stakeholders (including the North and South River Watershed Association) to help convert a deteriorated site to public open space all the while addressing existing environmental issues caused by past development.

Nitsch Engineering designed the civil engineering and stormwater management components of the park. The park includes Low Impact Development (LID) stormwater techniques including permeable pavers for the parking lot; two rain gardens to filter stormwater runoff from the shade shelter, walkways, and the monument area; vegetated swales; native vegetation; and level spreaders.
