The District K office partnered with the Parks and Recreation Department in celebration of the 2014 Arbor Day festivities that occurred on January 25th. As part of the Arbor Day plantings, the Parks and Recreation Department contributed 100 five gallon trees toward Glenshire Park.

January 25th was a frigid day in Houston. Despite the elements, dedicated volunteers from the Glenshire Community Association pitched-in to assist with the planting efforts. Thus, the Parks Dept. decided to plant 50 trees whereby the remaining 50 trees can be used for a future tree planting event within Glenshire Park this Spring. The Parks Dept. has already selected the planting sites (greenspace area closest to the parking lot).

“I would like to thank the Parks and Recreation Dept. for selecting Glenshire Park as one of the 2014 Arbor Day sites within the city of Houston. In addition, I want to thank Trees for Houston for donating gloves for this event,” states Council Member Green.
