Town of Kansas Bridge Entry/Rain Garden

Silver
2012

The Town of Kansas Bridge Entry/Rain Garden is an engineering solution that became a design opportunity. It is a landscaped bio-retention garden, seating area and bike rack that collects and distributes 800 cubic feet of excess storm water from adjacent buildings and the beginning of Main Street. The design also establishes the entry to the pedestrian bridge as a trailhead to the newly completed series of riverfront parks below.
