Community Park at Cordata
Herrera provided civil engineering for the first phase of the development of Cordata Park for the City of Bellingham. The 20-acre park site surrounds a 4-acre wetland and includes a picnic shelter, maintenance building, splash pad, parkour area, restroom building, pump track, playground, parking lot, associated utilities and approximately 4,000 linear feet of trail outside of the park core. Herrera managed all civil engineering aspects of the project, including hydrologic modeling to maintain the hydrologic inputs to 12 wetlands and one stream, providing site and utility design to support the park uses, as well as coordinating pedestrian, vehicular, and utility connections to the Cordata Parkway right-of-way. Construction of the first phase of Cordata Park improvements was completed in Summer 2020.
