Arbor Day Celebration to Take Place at Buddy Todd Park

The City of Oceanside will be hosting an Arbor Day Ceremony and Environmental Resource Fair on Thursday, September 12th from 10am-2pm at Buddy Todd Park. Students from Mira Costa College and Ocean Shores High School will be planting over a dozen trees to beautify the park and it looks like there will be plenty of booths for the environmental resource fair.

The fact that it’s on a Thursday at 10am might make it difficult for working folks and children to attend, so be sure to plant a tree on your own time!

  2. Childrens’ playground
  3. Picnic area
