The Bay-Friendly project site is at the Woolsey/University park entrance for McLaren Park. Prior to construction, the site was a natural sloped area with weeds at the bottom of the hill. It was re-landscaped to Bay-Friendly standards to collect stormwater run off from the adjacent asphalt road into the swales planted with drought tolerant natives.
