Historical Information
In 1988, when the proposed development of rowhouses on this site meant the cutting down of the historic Corbett Oak, hundreds of community members came to the rescue! Through political and public pressure, the tree was spared. Nearly 10 years later, another development scheme threatened the venerable oak, and the Friends of the Oak rallied once again to save the tree. They raised funds to buy the tree and its lot, and worked with the Parks Bureau to add it to the City's public park inventory as Heritage Tree Park.
