Elk Grove Rain Garden Plaza
The Elk Grove Rain Garden Plaza is designed to educate and build community awareness to conserve water resources, improve water quality, attract wildlife habitat, and promote watershed stewardship through both passive learning and hands-on fun interactive educational components. The project features an outdoor open space that includes a rain garden, pervious paving systems, water harvesting features, and California native, drought resistant plants. The Plaza features low-impact development practices that work with nature to manage stormwater as close to its source as possible by incorporating “river-friendly” landscaping techniques. The Rain Garden Plaza acts like a living laboratory teaching people of all ages to have fun as they learn about sustainable stormwater practices.
