The site around City Field Stadium is in the flood zone and requires a planning strategy to negate the overflow of water in the residential neighborhood around the Stadium. The proposed green strips provide a buffer zone to adjust the flow of water in the area. On the left side of City Field, the green strips are composed of bioswales that direct water to filter through. On the right side of City Field, the green strips create a soft edge between the ground and the water with marshes that create an ecological landscape. The new Recreation Center sits inside one of the green weaves and becomes a park with play fields, when the transformable roof structure opens up.
