Polliwog Park in Manhattan Beach protects homes by collecting rain runoff
Polliwog Park did what it is designed to do during Thursday’s heavy rain, by collecting rain runoff, and providing food and a resting place for local and migratory water birds. And providing a place for residents to celebrate nature’s gifts over the holiday season.
The pond functions as a retention basin. Water is stored in the basin to protect the storm water system from being overwhelmed, and flooding streets, according to the City of Manhattan Beach website. ER
