SEBRING -- The Sebring Community Redevelopment Agency, in conjunction with the city of Sebring, held a Sebring Centennial Park Dedication and Tree Planting Ceremony on April 22, Earth Day, in the park at Lakeview and South Ridgewood Drive.
The property was purchased by the Sebring CRA, and the park was funded by the Sebring CRA as part of its Downtown Sebring redevelopment initiatives. This project helps the CRA accomplish its 20-year, seven-segment redevelopment plan and addresses the topic of beautification, to beautify the driver's approach to downtown on the Parkway to create an aesthetically appealing experience.
International Mother Earth Day is a celebration of the Earth and its ecosystems, which provide all of its inhabitants with life and sustenance. Observed each year on April 22, this day is a call to action as it acknowledges our collective responsibility "to promote harmony with nature and the Earth" in order to "achieve a just balance among the economic, social, and environmental needs of present and future generations" of humanity. Arbor Day encourages people to appreciate, plant and care for trees the last Friday of April.
