100 new trees are now growing at a Fresno park
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Several volunteers showed up today at the Romain Neighborhood Center to plant four different types of trees.
The city bought them with a grant from the State Department of Transportation.
Officials say the trees will help improve the environment in more ways than one.
Fresno PARCS grant writer Irma Yepez-Perez said, "Because of the proximity to Highway 180 & 41 it's very important to help again& the air quality and sound is community."
The Romain Neighborhood Center re-opened to the public last summer after undergoing renovations including improvements to the basketball courts and a new playground.
