Kathryn Johnston Park to relieve flooding along Boone Boulevard

The newly named Kathryn Johnston Memorial Park in the English Avenue neighborhood in west Atlanta was redeveloped to help curb the persistent flooding of streets and homes that historically plagued this area. LONG designed the 3.2 acre park with Green Infrastructure to reduce the volume of stormwater that enters the 14’ diameter combined sewer that passes beneath the park property. This includes enhanced swales with weir walls to encourage ponding and promote infiltration, a stormwater planter on Oliver Street that overflows into a bio-retention area and two major water quality systems consisting of Stormtech Chambers encased in stone.

The Kathryn Johnston Memorial Park was developed by Park Pride, The Conservation Fund, and the City of Atlanta Department of Parks and Recreation and Office of Sustainability. Amenities will include a playground, fitness stations, and seating terrace.
