Flood Plain Boardwalk

This boardwalk represents the floodplain levels of a 100 year flood.  In the case of a flood like this, the water from Walnut Creek would submerge almost half of the park, up to this boardwalk.  The boardwalk also allows you to walk out onto the prairie without damaging any of the dominant grasses and other plants that are adapted to living in this grassy area.
