Pyrmont rain gardens

Pyrmont Road Gardens

This is a view of the rain gardens in Pyrmont.

The gardens have been constructed between 224 to 308 Harris Street by Sydney City Council to address issues on:

  • stormwater runoff management eg to address both water quantity and quality issues from the roofs and footpaths
  • keeping the runoff near where it falls, thereby roughly restoring the natural water cycle
  • using gravity to store and hold water, mainly for irrigation of the trees and vegetation

Good on you Council, the more the merrier,
