This area simulates the effect of heavy rain, an event that is becoming increasingly frequent and often causes inconvenience and damage to our cities, and the positive effect that vegetation can have on the urban runoff by creating rain gardens.
Pipes with nozzles have been installed on the pergolas to simulate the effect of rain that is collected on the impermeable pavement and is then conveyed to the rain garden, a flowerbed located at a slightly lower level that can be flooded temporarily before the water flows naturally into the ground thanks to the presence of drains.

The public can thus observe what happens in our cities thanks to rain gardens from where water drains slowly away to the water table.

Rain gardens therefore contribute to making our cities more pleasant and beautiful, but also to reducing the effects of heavy rainfall in areas with a high degree of soil sealing.

The water feature is operated during the day at set times posted by the staff.
