Kahawa Sukari Neighbourhood Park
A key feature is the rainwater garden which will ensure surface run-off is collected, filtered, and cleaned through plants, natural and engineered soil, and rock process, stored in an underground water tank, and reused for irrigation and cleaning. An important sustainability aspect in an area that is plagued by irregular water supply.
All the excavated material has also been reused on-site as mounds/earth berms for active play areas hence greatly saving on costs.
