The Avery Avenue Pass Arboretum Project is one of many collaborations between Onondaga County and the City of Syracuse Parks Department. 11,000 square feet of rain gardens were installed along the east side (Avery Ave.) of the park. The location is an ideal spot for education opportunities with walkways and pedestrian traffic woven into the footprint.
This project was designed with consideration for historic preservation and was approved by the City of Syracuse Landmark Preservation Board. The new plantings in Pass Arboretum were chosen according to the vegetation historically found in this park.
