Daylighting the Creek

One of the projects of BCEE is to daylight a section of Bowman Creek. The section of the creek that would be best for this project is the length of the creek that flows underneath the Riley High School campus. The designer for this project is Environmental Design student Tim Brown from Ivy Tech Community College. His designs daylight and re-route Bowman Creek through the Riley High School campus. Instead of flowing underneath the Riley track and football field, the creek will flow around the track and in between the track & tennis courts. Tim’s design incorporates terracing the steep hill up to RIley’s tennis court from the track. The creek will cross under Fellows street before entering a brand-new park constructed where an unused section of the Riley student parking lot used to be. The new park will include Bowman Creek, a pond, gazebos, benches, a small bridge, sidewalks, and all native plants & trees.
