The Hollice T. Williams Stormwater Park is a RESTORE Direct Component (Pot 1) funded project located under the I-110 overpass from Maxwell Street to Wright Street in the City of Pensacola. Escambia County entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with the City of Pensacola on December 14, 2018 to manage, administer, and complete design of the Hollice T. Williams Stormwater Park project consistent with the terms of the U.S. Department of Treasury Grant Agreement with the County. Design includes stormwater attenuation, water quality improvements, dual-use recreational fields, multi-use paths, skatepark, landscaping, lighting, early learning activities, and programmed art space. The park will not only serve to improve water quality and attenuate stormwater, but also serve to reconnect the fabric of the neighborhood fragmented by the construction of I-110 in the 1970s by creating a place all members of the community come together to enjoy.
