City Park Tree Projects Made Possible by the 2018 Hat Luncheon

Half of the proceeds of the 2018 Hat Luncheon went to City Park, and many of the funded projects have been completed. In addition to planting twenty 30-gallon Live Oak trees, City Park has used Hat Luncheon funding to complete much needed tree removal and pruning of vines, palms, and water oaks in several areas of the park, including the Great Lawn, the Boat House area, and the island across from the Peristyle.

Poor drainage threatens the health of some of the park’s oaks, and upcoming projects include drainage improvement at the festival grounds and near Big Lake to maintain live oak health.

Visit City Park and take a look around—you made a difference there by participating in the 2018 Luncheon—and there is more to do in 2019!
