Arboretum in Ambassador Park
Windsor City Councillor John Elliott and TD Canada Trust staff Christine Mills and Jenny Vu commemorated the new Arboretum in Ambassador Park today by shovelling the final mulch around the trees.
Ten trees were recently planted in the Ward 2 park on Windsor’s riverfront, located near the western entrance to the Windsor Sculpture Park.
Plaques with a brief description of the tree’s attributes were also placed at the base of each tree, providing an educational opportunity for people to learn more about the types of native trees that grow along the banks of the Detroit River.
The TD Friends of the Environment Foundation provided the funding for the project in celebration of Canada’s 150th year.
Today’s event follows a cheque presentation that was held in June, when Mayor Drew Dilkens accepted a ceremonial cheque for $15,000 from TD Canada Trust District Vice President Eric Griggs.
