Lake Lenexa and Blackhoof Park 

Lenexa, Kansas 

Lake Lenexa and Black Hoof Park are the 250-acre cornerstone of Lenexa’s cutting edge stormwater management program, Rain to Recreation. The parks, trails, wetlands and lake combine with Black & Veatch’s truly innovative spillway design to create a place like no other in the region where flood reduction, water quality improvement, habitat restoration, recreation and education all come together to make Lenexa a healthier community for generations to come.The project was given the 2006 American’s Crown Community Award by the American City and Council Magazine
