Tree Section Community Amenities
In the Tree Section neighborhood, families can walk down shaded streets to Live Oak Park – a grassy, expansive area with two baseball fields, tennis courts, a dog park, kids’ play area, and a community center. Another of the Tree Section’s perks is Sand Dune Park, a three-acre park that boasts a unique, 100-foot-tall sand dune. Fitness enthusiasts love to run up its face and kids love to slide down it. Because of its popularity, the city recently instituted a reservation system, so people have to call ahead to book time on the dune.
