Look at the roof of the Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort, does it look normal to you? Do you see the plants covering the surface? This is an example of a “green roof”, which unlike a normal roof, is a “pervious surface”. Precipitation that lands on this green roof is adsorbed by the soil on the roof and channeled gradually to the ground, thereby minimizing surface runoff. Green roofs are one of several techniques used in more urbanized environments to control surface runoff.

To reach the next stop, you will need to cross Main Street at the next crosswalk and start walking up the paved pathway that leads to the Crown Plaza Resort. Your stop is at the tennis courts halfway up the hill.
