Clifton Street River Garden
2022 Greenspace Report
This summer, the Clifton St. River Garden volunteers continued their re-envisioning of the canoe launch garden; adding dozens of brightly colored flowering perennials, in hopes of creating a neighborhood focal point that could be seen from the top of the Clifton St. hill. The addition of these plants, beyond providing an attractive and visually interesting entryway to the canoe launch, where people gather to sit and fish or simply enjoy the incredible waterfront view, would also function to stabilize the slope of the bed to prevent runoff into the storm drain. The work brought together both new and long-term residents of the neighborhood, creating a community centered around stewardship and maintenance of the garden.
