MetadataShow full item record
This thesis aims to explore an effective solution to reclaim the brownfield near the Newtown neighborhood in Gainesville, GA, reduce the impact from industrial activities and turn the site into a park that serves the surrounding neighborhoods. Newtown residents have suffered from pollution of soil, noise and dust for decades because the neighborhood is located near an industrial district. The final design proposal is achieved by the combination of remediation technologies and landscape design and the combination of a community park and greenway. It not only helps Newtown residents eliminate health risks, but also revitalizes the site by taking industrial history, the need for greenway connection and surrounding land development into consideration.
