Keith-Wiess Basin Park
Knudson, in collaboration with White Oak Studio, developed a Park Master Plan for recreation and drainage improvements along the Halls Bayou Greenway. The project included a major expansion of detention capacity along Halls Bayou and recreational improvements throughout the site. Knudson, in conjunction with the project engineers, created a naturalized drainage system with wetland plantings and meandering side slopes. These improvements along the banks allowed for the addition of hike and bike trails, boardwalks, piers, and seating areas. The plans for this shared-use park also include soccer fields and playground improvements.
Prior to the development of the Parks Master Plan, Knudson’s principal Ecological Specialist, Katie Northrup, P.G., conducted the initial Site Assessment and provided Harris County Flood Control District a comprehensive plant inventory.
