Antelope Park Water Quality Projects

The City of Lincoln Public Works and Utilities Watershed Division, the City of Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department, and the Lower Platte South Natural Resources District are implementing planned improvements to Antelope Park as part of the Antelope Creek Watershed Basin Master Plan. The project area includes several locations along the Rock Island Trail from Sheridan Boulevard to "A" Street, as well as locations in and around the Zoo.

The water quality features are designed to slow down stormwater and allow it to infiltrate the soil to remove contaminants before the stormwater reaches Antelope Creek. The features include bioretention cells and swales, pervious pavement, amended soils, green roof and a rainwater harvesting cistern. The project also includes educational components.
