RAIN GARDEN

 

PERMEABLE PAVER PARKING LOT AND RAIN GARDEN

The permeable paver parking lot and rain garden on the Greenway is now open!  Spaces have been marked for parking on the entire lot including the “Turfstone” area that resembles grass.  Along with the additional parking, our main goal in this particular area is to filter run-off into the Hawksbill Creek.

 

By installing the permeable pavers, rain garden, and associated landscaping, we have achieved our goal and are confident that the environmental benefits of this project will have a positive impact on our waterway for generations. This project was made possible through a grant provided by the Virginia Department of Forestry.
