Stafford Park is the city's largest park, encompassing over 35 acres. The park is populated with native oak, birch, poplar, maple and many other trees, but the ash trees are succumbing to the Emerald Ash Borer, wihich has also infested most of the ash trees througout Ohio. The Adult Softball program donated several replacement maple trees the past several years in an effort to replace the loss of the native shade trees in the park.. Unfortuntately, it is expected that a number of ash trees will continue to be lost in both Stafford and Dunham Parks in the years ahead. CLICK HERE for pics of tree removal on August 5, 2016.
