In an effort to better serve its residents & community, the City of Auburn wanted to develop additions to its popular 20-acre Les Gove Campus Park that would support youth activities, as well as community recreation needs for all ages. The facility connects the existing senior center with a new covered walkway, and also improved shared parking by providing a new pervious concrete parking lot for 69 vehicles.
This 36,000 square foot concrete parking area features rain gardens with informational monuments about pervious concrete and storm water. Not only a great design because construction process & design made use of indigenous and recycled low-VOC building materials but it also educates the public. City of Auburn is a big fan of pervious concrete and we can expect to see a lot of projects around this community containing pervious concrete
