Miami Lakes, FL - The Town of Miami Lakes invites you to join in the annual Arbor Day and Tree Planting Ceremony taking place on Wednesday, April 26th at 6 pm at Miami Lakes Picnic Park West, located at 15151 NW 82nd Avenue.
With more than 17,000, the beautiful canopy trees in Miami Lakes have long been the signature of the Town. The Town of Miami Lakes continues to be recognized for its abundant, beautiful tree canopy as well as its exceptional tree management practices, with both the Tree City USA Certification and Growth Award designation for this past year.
This year’s tree will be planted in memory of the late Penny Lambeth- Miami Lakes resident and well-known historian and preservationist. Arbor Day is the perfect day to celebrate her memory as Lambeth served as Vice President of TREEmendous Miami, a volunteer group that helped plant thousands of trees throughout Miami-Dade.
