BEVERLY HILLS—The city of Beverly Hills is celebrating the 32nd Annual Arbor Day with the Walk with the Mayor weekly event on Monday, June 12. Mayor Lili Bosse, members of the Recreation and Parks and Public Works Commissions, children of the Roxbury Park Preschool and participants of the weekly Walk with the Mayor event will be on hand.
According to a press release from Therese Kosterman, Public Information Manager for the city of Beverly Hills, Chinese Elm trees and a Pink Flowering Trumpet tree will be planted.
The event is slated to transpire at 9:30 a.m. at Roxbury Memorial Park located at 471 S. Roxbury Drive (west side of the park). There will be parking available in the adjacent alley. The event was originally planned for April 28, but was cancelled because of high winds in the region on that day.
The weekly walks began on April 3 and will continue throughout her term, Bosse is inviting members of the community to join her on weekly morning walks to share their thoughts and discuss issues affecting the city. It is important to Ms. Bosse to promote a healthy lifestyle among her constituents.
Operating under the social media hashtag #bhhealthycity, the Mayor informed the public on the city’s website that, “All you need is a pair of walking shoes, a water bottle, and an enthusiasm for all things Beverly Hills!”
Ms. Bosse’s weekly walks as mayor began in 2014 as a way to stay in touch with the community and to encourage public health. According to the city’s website, her goal has always been to “create a new sense of community in our world class city.”
