Project DescriptionThe Hamilton Rainscape emerged from community plans to address blight and stormwater issues. The location and elements of the design were selected through a community engagement process that brought together residents and the designers throughout the development of the project. Residents, ECN staff, and InSite Design Studio came together to create a beautiful open space to gather, redirect stormwater from the street into rain gardens, and serve as an education tool for the community.
