Blooming with a natural beauty

Planted in 1995, Largo Central Park's magnolia trees make up roughly 15 percent of the park's 980 trees.
The population includes Southern magnolias, new little gems, brown brackens, D.D. Blanchards and old little gems.
Magnolias and other trees at the park are maintained through the park's Tree Memorial Lane program, which collects a fee ($300, $500 or $2,000) from sponsors to fund the maintenance of ornamental or shade trees in exchange for a plaque under a tree to memorialize loved ones.
