Tree Day sees 100 plantings at The Runway Park

More than 100 plants have been planted at The Runway Park in Trafalgar Ave, Woy Woy, for National Tree Day on Sunday, August 2.

The Grow Urban Shade Trees group organised 22 volunteers over two sessions to plant these and also 10 trees, including two advanced trees donated by the Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch.

The other plants were supplied by Central Coast Council.

Group member Ms Jenn Rochford said it was inspiring to see the community caring for the park.

“Many people remember the early days of the park with one set of swings on a flat, bare piece of land,” she said.

“As well as increasing habitat and adding to the beauty of the area, National Tree Day this year was a great chance to remind ourselves just how far the park has come thanks to the ongoing community effort.”
