New trees planted at Hernando’s Kuykendall Park

Among the improvements the City of Hernando is involved in is at Milton Kuykendall Park, where a number of trees were recently planted.  The many varieties of trees were provided by the Hernando Young Women’s Club through the club’s city beautification funds, said Hernando Mayor Chip Johnson. 

“We are grateful to the Hernando Young Women’s Club for continuing to work to help make our city a place that all families can enjoy,” said Mayor Chip Johnson.  

Jared Barkley, director of Hernando Parks and Recreation, stated, “We appreciate the continued support from the Hernando Young Women’s Club to invest in Hernando’s Parks.” 

The new trees being added are Bald Cypresses, Tupelo Blackgums, Red Maples, Willow Oaks, Redbuds, and Yoshino Cherry Trees.

“The Hernando Young Women’s Club looks forward to continuing our commitment to the beautification of Hernando,” said club president Anna Leigh Minor. “The generous donations from our community help make projects like this one possible.” 

Camp Creek Landscape owner Mitch McNeely and designer Zach Hill oversaw the design and installation of more than 25 different trees.
