Dayton mayor Nan Whaley, former Ohio Governor Robert Taft, and a host of dignitaries were present for a special ceremony on May 1st, announcing the development of Dayton’s Cherry Blossom Trail. One hundred cherry trees from the Operation 1000 Cherry Tree Project, funded by a donation from Dayton Power & Light, will create a Cherry Blossom Trail linking the Dayton Art Institute to Carillon Historical Park along the great Miami River.
“We are thrilled to add these beautiful trees to Dayton’s urban landscape and very grateful for the efforts and generosity of DP&L and Operation 1000 Cherry Tree Project,” said Mayor Nan Whaley. “The trees are one more addition to a quickly evolving urban environment that is improving every day in Dayton.”
