Explore three neighborhood parks of Morningside with interesting history dating from the 1920s and classic trees. Learn about the importance of the community in protecting the tree canopy which helps to provide habitat for insects, birds, etc. Touring a neighborhood is a delightful way to learn more about the special trees, history and explore (or rediscover) the urban forest growing along our community streets and parks. Learn how this neighborhood has worked together to keep green areas by the stopping of interstate 485 in the late 60s. The Morningside Lenox Park neighborhood is celebrating it’s 100th anniversary.
