An emerging solution to the challenge of urban stormwater management is the use of green roofs. Easily utilized on the flat roofs of many commercial, industrial or civic buildings, green roofs are used to store stormwater falling on the roof and use it for irrigation of rooftop vegetation, irrigation of landscaping or infiltration. Besides reducing land costs, by reduced needs for an area for stormwater management, green roofs often create charming outdoor space for gardens, break rooms and gathering spaces, thereby increasing building value. The restrooms (shown here) by the pavillion show a small-scale example so that the public can have a better understanding of what a “Green Roof” is.
