Celebrating 100 years in Rochester was the theme of a ceremony held on Friday at Washington Grove.
Nature enthusiasts, students and neighbors came together to plant a memorial tree at the Washington Grove, which is located just East of Cobbs Hill Park.
It was all to commemorate the Grove's 100th anniversary.
Neighbors say it is an exciting time to see the Grove, which they still remember as children.
Peter Debes is a naturalist. He says, "I loved coming up here as a kid and playing. It's how I became a naturalist, and as a naturalist I eventually started a company here in Rochester leading eco-tours for 20 years."
The city also announced a fundraising effort to plant more trees at the Grove.
