Parking Lot at Rosewood Park

The parking lot at Rosewood Park was paved in 2012 using a new permeable paver called PaveDrain. This is the first site in the state of South Carolina to use this new technology.

PaveDrain pavers

Rainwater drains between each of the concrete blocks, into a sublayer of rocks, then into a nearby rain garden. The rain garden is designed to absorb a lot of the excess rain, reducing storm water runoff.

This parking lot was originally a dirt lot that neighbors called “the dust bowl.”
