Project Profile:

Bowditch Point Regional Park

Project Summary

The landscaping crew chief explains that this peninsula was manmade with fill material. There are vertical spray heads mounted on poles of PVC pipe about four feet in the air to irrigate all the plant material. Some of the trees will reach 60’ when mature. The main driveway and aisles were paved in asphalt, and the parking bays were covered in gravel with Gravelpave2 as the reinforcement. There is a little too much gravel covering the stone so you will see some migration onto the asphalt where traffic is highest. To help with heavy rains, a concrete swale was installed between parking bays. The asphalt is pitched toward the gravel to aid in surface runoff.
