Restoring A Long-Forgotten Community Resource

Plans are underway to daylight Butterfly Creek, which has been paved over for decades. Allowing the creek to flow naturally again will cultivate a fun, positive space for individuals of all ages to enjoy. The work on Butterfly Creek is just one of many projects directed at restoring the beauty of the Northside Community.

After the creek has been daylighted, the surrounding area will be transformed into a park including walking and biking trails, educational kiosks, pavilions, and an outdoor learning laboratory for children to learn about the variety of native flora growing there. Located in the heart of the Northside behind Harvest Park, restoring this community asset is expected to bring new life to the area around the creek.
