Advisories & Alerts

We have recently been awarded a grant by the No. Ky. Urban and Community Forestry Council for our proposal to make a Tree Education Area. This grant will assist in a portion of the funding. There will be two areas created– one of smaller trees for identification, which will be found behind the Wishing Well Overlook at the park. The other area of marked mature trees on a trail which will be located off Stillwater Trail. The Landmark Tree Trail – is a combination of Jones Way and the Stillwater trail, with some new add features.
