The pub­lic is in­vited to a ground­break­ing cer­e­mony for a rain gar­den at a park in the 300 block of Car­na­tion Drive.

The event is sched­uled for Fri­day at 3 p.m. at the park. Bor­ough and state elected of­fi­cials are ex­pected to at­tend. Once com­pleted, the rain gar­den will slow, fil­ter and pu­rify a sig­nif­i­cant por­tion of stormwa­ter run­ning through Flo­ral Park. The gar­den also in­cludes a walk­ing trail and ed­u­ca­tional plac­ards with in­for­ma­tion on plants and tree species in the area.

The rain gar­den will be funded via a grant from the state Depart­ment of En­vi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion, bor­ough Man­ager Vir­ginia Ke­hoe said. The gar­den is ex­pected to be com­pleted by mid-Oc­to­ber, though other work, like cleanup and adding the plac­ards, will be com­pleted later, Ke­hoe said.
