History:

The Leonard Park rain garden was installed as part of the Rockaway Valley Garden Club's goal of "going green" in 2008. The project was initiated as a follow-up to a Spring 2008 presentation conducted by Dr. Christopher Obropta on rain gardens.

Type of Runoff Managed:

This rain garden manages stormwater from the Leonard Park parking lot and a portion of the adjacent road.

Installation:

Approximately ten Rockaway Valley Garden Club members were present for the installation of the rain garden in June 2008 which was approved by the Boonton Township Committee. J.S.L. Greentree, a professional Landscape Architect, donated her time and expertise in selecting the proper native plants for the rain garden. Boonton Township provided in-kind support to assist with the rain garden installation. The native plants were donated by Ingrid Witty, Rockaway Valley Garden Club President, and J.S.L. Greentree, a professional Landscape Architect. The mulch was donated by Rich Skyler of Red Hawk Tree Service. The fence was donated by Ingrid Helen Witty.
