On June 4 and 11, People for Puget Sound will host rain garden tours around Ballard. June 4 is a bicycle tour starting at 10 a.m. at Bergen Place Park (5420 22nd Ave. NW). June 11 is a walking tour, and will meet at 10 a.m. at the Loyal Heights Elementary playground.
The tours will be an hour and a half long and will visit different residences in Ballard to learn about rain garden designs. Participants will be able to, “speak with residents about the design process, special considerations, and the results of their rain gardens and cisterns,” Robert Hall from People for Puget Sound wrote in an email. He said the tour will feature residents who have participated in Seattle Public Utility’s RainWise program.
Hall said coffee will be available before the tour, and appetizers will be served afterward at Snoose Junction Pizzeria.
