Gabriel Skate Park Rain Garden

Environmental Services completed the Gabriel Skate Park near SW Vermont and 45th in 2008 and constructed a large rain garden to treat the stormwater from the new impervious area. The rain garden moderates flows by retaining stormwater and allowing it to soak into the ground. Vegetation and soil in the raid garden filter pollutants from the runoff. Environmental Services and Portland Parks & Recreation worked together on the project.
