And, yes, there really is a ?natural water garden? where once was just dirt, rock and debris. The recently installed water feature at the park, between the restroom facilities and the parking area walkway, was the design of 14-year-old Crescenta Valley High School sophomore Brianne Johnson. Johnson created the water garden as her Girl Scout Troop No. 290 Gold Award project.
