We are thrilled to announce that Gretna City Park received the American Institute of Architects 2023 Small Scale Honor Award for the project’s groundbreaking design approach to the integration of small scale architecture with in a high performance stormwater landscape! The park is the Louisiana’s Strategic Adaptions for Future Environments program’s first completed project, and its 6.5-million-gallonstormwater capacity is the highest in the New Orleans area. The park embodies Living with Water®, pairing infrastructure with amenities while prioritizing risk reduction and elevating quality of life. Jurors remarked “the built structures go beyond the engineering of the weir dams of the park and become architecture”. Waggonner & Ball led master planning, stormwater design, and architecture for the project.
