During every heavy rain event flooding would occur from the township parking lot into Taylor Park in the downtown commercial center of Millburn Township. A new two tiered rain garden has been installed to reduce stormwater and mitigate pollutants going into the adjacent Rahway River that runs in the center of town and through Taylor Park. The new rain gardens are planted with native perennials, shrubs and flowering trees that also add a new layer of landscape to this active park in the center of town.
