Low water use trees and shrubs were planted as part of a beautification project at Goodyear’s historic Loma Linda Park. The park is located where the roots of Goodyear began. What started as a small community known for its ability to farm cotton to make Goodyear tires, has become one of America’s fastest growing cities. The five-acre park provides a place for the community to come together. Community volunteers helped to plant Evergreen Elm trees and numerous shrubs and install decomposed granite. Turf was minimized and replaced with xeriscaping – all with a focus on low water consumption.
