Where is this located? The four rain gardens lie next to the loop trail between the parking lot and the baseball field.
What’s special about this place? Next to the parking lot drain, you’ll see a series of wide and shallow, interconnected depressions known as rain gardens. Runoff from the majority of the parking lot passes through these engineered rain gardens – one after another. In each one, plants slow down the flow which gives the particles in the stormwater time to seep into the soil. Through biological processes, nutrients and other contaminants are removed by the vegetation and roots.
