One aspect of this project is a storm-water detention pond with riparian planting. The pond is enveloped with a wood rail fence alongside a 3 meter wide asphalt pathway for maintenance access. The design proposes a lookout area with educational signage, bench seating area with receptacle, native shrub and perennial planting areas, boulder or gabion retaining walls, tree groves, native grasses and sidewalk access with boulevard tree planting.
