The Tacoma Nature Center is a 17-acre wetland and is the central feature of the Tacoma Nature Center. DCG teamed with a Landscape Architect to design park improvements including a nature-centered playground, trails and an interactive water feature. DCG was responsible for the design of structural, drainage, erosion control, and utility elements for the project. Low Impact Development techniques used in stormwater design included rain gardens and a dispersion trench. The low impact facilities allowed for the infiltration and pretreatment of the stormwater before being dispersed into natural vegetation and are incorporated into the recreational and educational function of the park.
