When you visit Pine Tree Park, be sure to pack the binoculars. This idyllic spot offers wide-open space, walking trails and lots of opportunities to spot various species of birds and other wildlife. The oasis of natural beauty tucked into a residential neighborhood is a great example of how Kent supports and treasures its parks and recreation facilities. (The city is home to more than 70 parks, playfields, trails and open spaces.) When it looked like Pine Tree Park might be developed, residents rallied together to preserve this local treasure.
