5 Down Celebration at Cliveden Park
The Friends of Cliveden Park celebrated five years of Green City, Clean Waters during LOVE Your Park Week with a May 14 cleanup and tour of the unique terraced rain gardens. Every time it rains, tens of thousands of gallons stormwater runoff from nearby streets are managed by a series of lush rain gardens filled with native Pa. plants. While the gardens seem like natural landscaping, they are part of growing network of green tools designed to protect local watersheds from polluted runoff and prevent sewer overflows.
