Pass Christian is a designated Tree City
Two live oak trees were donated to Church Park in Pass Christian.
Church Park, located on Church Avenue, was an abandoned space until renovations took place by Kirk Kimball, alderman of ward three.
Some of the renovations included new recreational equipment, painted basketball courts, water services, and more.
With Pass Christian being a designated Tree City, the live oaks were the perfect gift to include in the park, especially since they were able to be relocated and saved from being cut down.
Pass Christian has not been a Tree City since 2012. Mayor Jimmy Rafferty said, “It’s a great thing. At one point, we had it then and then it lapsed. Now, we’re being reinstated. So, we’re just very happy and we have a new beautification director. He’s just certified and we’re just very happy about moving forward and Pass Christian being a designated Tree City.”
Church Park is an ongoing renovation project for the city.
