Join the Town of Parker and the Parks and Recreation Department in celebration of Arbor Day on the Saturday following Arbor Day each year!
We're changing things up a bit this year. Our parks are beautifully planted and so we are skipping the digging this year and will be giving away seedling trees! Arbor Day goodies and delicious pancakes will be provided.
Be sure to stop by the arborist table and meet the Town’s Parks and Forestry team. They can answer questions about tree planting, pruning and tree selection. Learn how to take care of your trees and make them last. Kids will also have the opportunity to build and take home a bird house courtesy of Home Depot!
In conjunction with the annual Arbor Day Celebration, join us for the new 5 Mile Run/Walk & Family Fun Trek as part of the Parker Parks and Recreation Run Series! Registration for the run/walk event is required.
