Raingardens
Small, green gardens are popping up all around Sydney. The City now has over 2,300 square metres of raingardens that filter out pollution. These self-watering gardens are often installed when new traffic public works improvements are made to the City?s streets. They are typically at street corners in the space where cars cannot park, and they replace what was once asphalt road pavement. ?By positioning them at such locations, the City also improves pedestrian safety by reducing the road crossing distance.

A garden feature at an inspiring memorial
Can you see the six soldiers firing on the people? This scene is part of the memorial called Jallianwala Bagh in Amritsar India commemorating the 2,000 Indians who were killed or wounded on April 13 1919 when the British General ordered soldiers to fire indiscriminately on a peaceful gathering. This was one of the major incidents that spurred India's freedom movement.
