The trees will add shade throughout the 37-acre park.​​<br></p><p>Funding for the project was made possible thanks to a grant and partnership between the city's <a target="_blank" href="/parks/fitphx">FitPHX</a> initiative, <a target="_blank" href="https://maricopacounty.github.io/park-rx-arizona/">ParkRx Arizona</a>, <a target="_blank" href="http://vitalysthealth.org/">Vitalyst​​ Health Foundation</a>, <a href="https://www.maricopa.gov/5302/Public-Health" target="_blank">Maricopa County ​Department of Public Health​</a>, <a target="_blank" href="https://www.aztrees.org/">Arizona Community Tree Council</a>, <a target="_blank" href="https://www.honorhealth.com/">HonorHealth</a>, and <a target="_blank" href="https://dffm.az.gov/">Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management</a>.​<br></p><p>Through the partnership, healthcare and social service providers "prescribe" to their patients to get outside, enjoy nature and spend time at a local park.

The city also has been distinguished by the Arbor Day Foundation as <a target="_blank" href="https://www.arborday.org/programs/treecityusa/">“Tree City USA"</a> for 35 consecutive years. ​<br></p><p><img src="/parkssite/MediaAssets/Photo_Tree_Planting_00039.JPG" style="margin:5px;width:495px;" /><br></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/parksNews
