On Saturday, November 2nd, 2019 the Elgin Parks and Recreation Department hosted their first annual Texas Arbor Day. All were invited to help in planting an "Edible Arbor Walk" of fruit trees down the sidewalk next to the Elgin Recreation Center in an effort to provide educational resources and edible offerings to our community. These trees will serve to increase the biodiversity in our park and reduce the mono-culture currently present.
