Sandy Springs Debuts Marsh Creek Rain Garden Park

On December 6th, Tri Scapes helped Sandy Springs cut the ribbon on its newest park, the Marsh Creek Rain Garden Park on Johnson Ferry Road.  The Marsh Creek Rain Garden Park is an innovative program designed to improve water quality by treating and filtering stormwater runoff before it flows into Marsh Creek, the tributary leading into the Chattahoochee River.  The project is anticipated to reduce flooding and stream bank erosion in the neighborhoods surrounding the immediate headwater area by reducing and controlling stormwater flow.

Acting as the general contractor, Tri Scapes’ role was to oversee and implement the hardscape and softscape features, creating an area that is an attractive greenspace. Other features include a permanent wet pond with a fountain, walking loop, observation deck, extensive landscaping, benches, educational interpretive signage to explain the stormwater treatment process, as well as a bio-retention area with specially selected plant species to remove pollutants from stormwater runoff.
