Group Plans to Honour Royal City Park Trees December 4th

An Excerpt from an Information Release from Friends of Royal City Park Group:

“The Friends of Royal City Park have organized a 1 hour vigil on Friday, December 4, 2009 from 7 to 8 pm at Royal City Park. We will assemble at the entrance trail to the park located at Gordon and Water Street to honour and thank the trees for all the benefits they have provided over the last 99 years. The intention is to celebrate the life of the trees and the many memories the trees have provided for ourselves, our children, our grandchildren and past generations. Come and share your memories with us of what these trees and this park means to you and how their loss will affect you.  Bring your own mug for hot apple cider. NOTE: We are not affiliated with any other group. We are gathering to express our thanks and love for the trees in Royal City Park, especially the nearly 100-year-old silver maples.”

  1. Will a collection be taken to purchase additional trees? I can’t afford to buy a whole tree, but I expect others like me would be pleased to contribute.

    • Thanks for your note Coral – it’s been heartwarming to see such a positive response to efforts to enhance RCP for the next generation. We are in the process of working out the details of a tree-sponsorship program (how much, tree size, planting schedule, etc.) as well as the possibility of expanding the idea to include other parks (Exhibition and St. George’s come to mind). More details to follow….
