TNWRRC's Roy Arthur provided management support, installation of BMPs, and graphic design for the Knox County Harrell Road Stormwater BMP Demonstration Park, which celebrated its opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on May 26, 2017.

Roy put together public/private partnerships, coordinated federal and local employees and volunteers of all ages, and acquired almost half of the park’s cost in donations in addition to many other tasks.

Harrell Road Stormwater Park is located off Harrell and West Emory between Karns and Powell. The 19 acres that make up the park were donated to Legacy Parks Foundation in 2008, and the group’s Land Conservation Committee decided to turn it into a neighborhood park.The park will be used by both professionals to teach about stormwater management practices and by the public for recreation and enjoyment of our region’s fauna and flora.
