Twin Trees Park 1949

July 30, 1949 Southeast Missourian

Twin Trees Park gets its name from the larger specimen shown in the picture. A Beech and a Rock Maple united at the base, and each sent up a shoot that is now a large tree. This park is close to the Mississippi River and consequently the trees and other plants in it grow rapidly. While not as popular as Scivally Park, nevertheless there is seldom a fair day but that it entertains a number of picnic parties.

From Twin Trees to Cape Rock Park, the stretch along the Mississippi has large beds of roses, many blooming shrubs, many ornamental crab apple trees and scores of evergreens of diversified strains. (G.D. Fronabarger photo)
