City invites community to Arbor Day event, park’s waterfall project

City leaders invite the community to celebrate Arbor Day at 10 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 16, at Pioneer Memorial Park, 387 E. Washington St., near the waterfall restoration project at the front of the park.

Join the mayor and city staff as they plant trees and shrubs around the waterfall. The celebration recognizes Sequim’s designation as a “Tree City USA” by the Arbor Day Foundation, and is held in the fall for the best planting conditions.

The Sequim Prairie Garden Club and city staff have joined forces for the a waterfall restoration project at the park. The waterfall was originally completed in 1965 but became inoperable in the 1990s due to leaks and other malfunctions, city officials said. The water was turned off and the pool was filled with cement.

The newly restored waterfall is expected to be entirely completed in spring 2018.

A ribbon cutting and celebration will be planned at that time to commemorate the waterfall.

For more information, call the City of Sequim Public Works Department at 360-683-4908.
