Employees from Strata Networks spent Saturday, June 29, beautifying the Roosevelt City walking path at Constitution Park. They donated labor, equipment, and supplies, and planted 48 trees along the south and west sides of the path.
This amazing service project completes an effort that was started earlier this summer by the Roosevelt Rotary Club. The walking path is now completely ringed by sapling trees which will provide shade and beauty to the area for many years to come.
"Strata spent a lot of time and money to make this project happen," said Parks Director Dustin Glines.
During a single day of work, volunteers from Strata were able to use their own equipment to lay new water line and plant four varieties of leafy trees: Canadian Reds, Honey Locusts, Flowering Pears, and Maples. These will match the trees planted along the soccer field and east side of the path earlier this summer.
"The trees may be small today, but they're going to have a huge impact on our city for years to come," said Roosevelt City Manager Ryan Snow. "The work Strata did was amazing and it's going to be of huge benefit to our city over time."
