Wireless Zelkova tree

This Wireless Zelkova tree was planted by the playground to bring some shade to that area.

The City of Roeland Park is planting seven new trees in R Park for shade and biodiversity as part of a $3,000 grant it received from KCP&L. The grant is part of KCP&L’s third annual “Energizing our Environment Microgrant Program.” The grant application was written by the parks committee and the Citizens Fundraising Group that has raised money for R Park improvements over the years.
