This coming Tuesday, May 14, at 5 PM, a new Smithfield City park will be born! Volunteers, guests, and city officials will gather at Sunset Park, located at the corner of 600 S. 1000 E. to plant 25 trees. TreeUtah, donors, and the city have joined forces to fund the tree purchases and get our latest arrival off to a good start.
The evening will begin at 5 PM, with a brief ceremony honoring the occasion, including the winners of the Birch Creek Elementary Arbor Day Poster contest as special guests of honor. Immediately following will be a public workshop by the TreeUtah foundation teaching proper tree planting techniques. Volunteers will begin planting trees around 6 PM. You are invited to come and participate! If possible, please bring shovels or wheelbarrow and be sure to label them with your name. Don’t miss this chance to welcome our newest park into the world! Refreshments will be served.
