Arbor Day

Event Type: Parks
Description:
Arbor Day: To celebrate Arbor Day, the City’s Park Department, with the assistance of elementary school children from the Highland Park Independent School District, plant a tree in one of the City’s parks.  University Park is known for its tree-lined streets and beautiful parks.  Since 1982, through the City’s “Trees for Town” program, residents have purchased more than 3,300 trees for front and side parkway areas (the grassy area between the sidewalk and curb) throughout the community.  The Park Department also has an ongoing tree replacement program that involves the City’s eight main parks and other public tree-lined areas.
