Abstract: The urban landscape can provide recreational opportunities by incorporating various features along urban streams and greenways. Recreational amenities increase local property values, which in turn increases the tax base and offers important social benefits such as better health, quality of life, and an increased appreciation for nature and the environment. The Corps of Engineers (Corps) has provided recreation opportunities in urban settings in three ways, as a part of Corps-operated projects, as a part of environmental restoration efforts, and by supporting others in development of recreation features by providing engineering solutions. Sponsors increasingly demand recreational opportunities to be incorporated into projects, or for Corps projects to accommodate later recreational enhancements by the sponsor.
