Stafford Park Ash Tree Information

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, which has also infested most of the ash trees throughout 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..  Unfortunately, it is expected that a number of ash trees will continue to be lost in both Stafford and Dunham Parks in the years ahead.

The Stafford Park “Fireman’s Gazebo” was restored in November, 2015 with the grateful assistance and donations from Home Depot.    A new roof, shingles, walkway and landscaping brickwork was installed around the flagpoles and gazebo area – and the city would like to thank the many volunteers from Home Depot for the assistance with this project.  Read more here.
