Santa Clarita celebrates completion of demonstration garden

SCV Water, the City of Santa Clarita and community partners, held a ribbon cutting last week for the Bridgeport Park Sustainable Landscape Demonstration Garden. The garden serves as an educational hub where individuals can immerse themselves in water-wise landscapes, efficient irrigation practices, and SCV Water resources including information on programs, incentives, and local landscape designer support.

“This Bridgeport Park Sustainable Landscape Demonstration Garden is the first of its kind for the community,” said SCV Water Sustainability Manager Matt Dickens. “And its primary goal is to offer accessible and interactive sustainable landscape concepts that inspire and educate visitors in various ways.”

Bridgeport Park was chosen as the site for the project based in part on the projected foot traffic, the proximity to schools, and its popularity among visitors.

The 14,800-square-foot demonstration garden is home to four distinct gardens, each designed with unique experiences and feature California Native and other climate-appropriate and low-water-using plants, high-efficiency irrigation, rain gardens, and a permeable concrete pad for use in garden maintenance.

“We are thankful to the City of Santa Clarita, the Bridgeport Elementary Green Team and local landscape designers,” said Dickens. “It was truly a collaborative effort and we are extremely happy to show the community what sustainable landscapes look like and what you can do in your own yard.”

The garden is located along Bridgeport Lane between Bridgeport Elementary School and Bridgeport Park. For more information, visit: https://www.yourscvwater.com/bridgeport-park
