Stormwater Demonstration Garden and Children’s Playscape

Funded by the 25th Century Foundation and completed in 2012, the Stormwater Demonstration Garden and Children’s Playscape (Rolling Hill Park, Gladwyne PA) is a native residential-scale rain garden that captures and treats the Conservancy’s stormwater runoff from our driveway and a portion of the cottage roof. Children and adults are welcome to come and use the sand pit, climbing logs, and discovery garden.

Here are some before, during, and after pictures of Cramer Design Associates Inc.  staff and volunteers building the rain garden in 2012:
