Vernon Park
Along with our partners, TTF built a rain garden in Vernon Park in the Germantown neighborhood of Philadelphia.

Rain gardens and other green infrastructure store and purify rainwater where it falls and allow it to soak into the ground. This helps prevent combined sewer systems from overflowing and polluting our waterways.

A rain garden is a shallow depression that can be planted with a variety of trees, shrubs and grasses. The rainwater that enters the garden will be taken up by the plants or will slowly infiltrate back into the soil. Rain gardens provide many benefits:

  • Clean water
  • Attractive gardens with colorful flowers
  • Habitat and food for wildlife
  • Reduction in stormwater runoff
