Cully-Concordia International Grove
The International Grove was planted by the Bureau of Environmental Services with input and help from both Concordia and Cully residents and business owners. Serving as the gateway from the north to both neighborhoods, the grove symbolizes the rich array of people living in the area by having trees from every continent except Antarctica, as well as native trees. The grove features an impressive mix of deciduous and evergreen broadleaf trees as well as a wide range of conifers.
Rigler School Arboretum
At Rigler, the wide range of native and introduced species serve as an outdoor classroom for students and anyone interested in tree diversity.
Thomas Cully Park
