Gladstone seal

Gladstone’s mayor and city council will commemorate Arbor Day at 10 a.m. Friday, April 9, 2021, in Central Park, located at the intersection of 70th and Northeast Campbell Street.

“Join Mayor Jean Moore, City Council and the classes from Oakhill Day School as we celebrate Arbor Day and Gladstone’s recognition as a Tree City USA by planting a tree in Central Park,” states a release. “Missouri’s official observance of Arbor Day began in 1887, when the legislature set aside a day in early April to encourage residents to appreciate and plant trees.”
