This idea must be a 'thing' as the largest city near us is completing 'flood dump' holes where flood waters temporarily fill pretty big holes then drain off afterwards.  This protects infrastructure in low-lying areas.

I think Denver uses some variation of this too, putting long "strip" parks along creeks and gullys that have a tendency to flood. The bigger you can make a flood plain and fill it with natural land (marshes, wildlife refuges, parks) rather than man-made structures, the better off you are.
