Hunting Park

Current Phase:


May 2019


Spring 2021


GSI project #50060 Hunting Park is part of the overall Green Infrastructure Initiative Green Cities, Clean Waters, a 25-year program implemented by City of Philadelphia to improve the stormwater management systems. The work will be done in Hunting Park and will add rain gardens and subsurface trenches to the park.

The Philadelphia Water Department (PWD) will decommission two green stormwater infrastructure (GSI) rain gardens within Hunting Park due to their persistent drain-down issues. PWD has reached this decision after listening to the valid concerns of community members, careful observation, PPR and partner input, and after failed attempts to retrofit these two rain gardens.

The decommissioning process begins with the removal of the plants within the gardens for replanting in other systems, removal of structural components of the system, backfilling, regrading of the land to prevent water from continuing to pool there, and finally, reseeding the area that is disturbed.

This work entails the use of heavy equipment near the rain gardens (indicated on the map above) for about a week. We anticipate the decommissioning work to begin the first or second week of May 2024, pending permit approval and coordination with Philadelphia Parks and Rec.
