Parc des Générations – En
The City of Waterloo is also committed to better menagement of storm water. In Septembre 2020, the City had a water garden set up at the Générations Park. It collects the rainwater that falls in the park where the popular BMX track and bobsleigh training area are located. The water garden also absorbs snow melt water.
The water directed in the rain garden previously flowed directly into Park Avenue.
The City had been planning the project for two years. Three master’s students in environment at the University of Sherbrooke have proposed to built a rain garden in that area to control rain water.
