Sandy Springs to dedicate Morgan Falls rain garden

A rain garden that will serve as a bio-detention area – taking stormwater runoff and treating it naturally – will be officially dedicated later this month at the Morgan Falls Overlook Park along the Chattahoochee River in Sandy Springs.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony is set for 11 a.m. Friday, May 10, at the park, 200 Morgan Falls Road, according to an announcement by Sandy Springs. Native aquatic vegetation and specially designed soils will clean and treat rainwater running off from the road.

The Sandy Springs Recreation and Parks Department is responsible for more than 950 acres of parkland in 20 parks and, in partnership with the National Park Service, maintains trails for hiking and exploring along 22 miles of the Chattahoochee. Information:
