Annual Rain and Garden Show


The City of Westlake and the Westlake Watershed Group host the Rain and Garden Show annually to provide residents and visitors with opportunities to discover products and get advice from presenters and local vendors on what all of us can do to maintain our local streams and waterways. The event includes a Kid Zone with fun activities for children.



Important to remember: All storm water flows directly into Lake Erie untreated, so it is our duty as Westlake residents to be conscious of our environment for future generations!

The City of Westlake and the Westlake Watershed Group would like to invite you to our 2017 Rain and Garden Show, at Market Square in Crocker Park, on Saturday, March 25, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
