McGregor Park Riparian Buffer:

April 19, 2018

 

 

 

Indiana Borough continues to strive for sustainability initiatives in ongoing projects throughout the Borough.  On May 16, 2017, the Indiana Borough Public Works Department, students and teachers from Ben Franklin Elementary School and representatives from Western PA Conservancy worked in collaboration to install a riparian buffer along a tributary to Marsh Run at McGregor Park in the First Ward of the Borough.  Trees, shrubs, flowering perennials and no-mow grass were planted along the stream bed.  Six cubic yards of bark mulch were applied to the stream bank to help sustain the buffer and protect the newly planted vegetation.  Previous to this project, on June 14, 2014, volunteers from the community and Borough employees helped install new playground equipment in conjunction with KaBoom!, an American non-profit organization that helps communities build playgrounds for children.  A metal roof was also installed over the restroom building.  The riparian buffer will be an ongoing project at the park.  A rain garden on the eastern edge of the park along North 2nd Street is planned for the future.
