First Annual Arbor Day Event
Friday, April 27 at 1 p.m.
Central Park, 1755 Town Park Blvd.
The event includes the ceremonial planting of a 20-foot Norway Spruce, a tree native to both Ohio and Romania in honor of our sister city relationship with Beius, Romania. The tree replaces the Concolor Fir tree at Central Park that served as the City of Green’s Christmas tree, which sustained damage and needs to be replaced.
