Abstract:
Development of procedures for a water-based linear park planning model has been undertaken to encourage recreation planners to use stream channels and flood plains within small watersheds in semiarid urban regions for recreation and flood control purposes. Dry stream channels should be utilized as the core of a linear park system which would include horse, bicycle, and hiking trails; picnic and play areas; natural vistas and desert buffer strips; lakes; and also be part of a larger continuous metropolitan recreation system. Localized flood damage may also be reduced within small watersheds by diverting portions of storm runoff from main washes into off-channel basins. Water impounded in these basins may be retained for recreational purposes or released after peak flow into the main channel. Planning procedures outlined include: a statement of goals and objectives, an inventory of natural resources, an analysis of urban land use patterns, consideration of legal and administrative constraints, economic feasibility, examination of criteria for site selection and design, environmental impact analysis, and review of procedures for plan implementation. Anklam Watershed, located on the eastern slope of the Tucson Mountains, Arizona, has been utilized as the model area for the conceptual development of a linear park system.
