Fontenelle Lake Green Infrastructure
Paxton Boulevard 

Omaha, Nebraska 

Repurposing a large part of a historic park that had long been a focal point for the community is no small feat, but Vireo worked with the city and engineers to expand a beautify a lagoon within the park while also turning it into a stormwater management resource for the entire Minne Lusa basin. Wetland fringes, forebays and native grasses were added, along with carefully planned access points and pathways, making for a more attractive, resilient and functional lake. Away from the lake, historic park features were also preserved and restored with guidelines set in place for any new construction.
