Long Description:
The Worthington Public Square, also known as the Public Green and the Worthington Village Green, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. The City of Worthington Parks Department accepts donations from individuals wishing to donate a tree in honor or memory of someone. A $200 donation will purchase a park tree and engraved plaque.

The following information is from a brochure titled Worthington Village Green Walking Tour:

"The Village Green is one of the oldest public parks in Ohio. Since 1803, at the founding of the Village of Worthington, our Green has been the center of village life and an important part of our New England heritage. The Green's picturesque shaded brick walkways still invite residents and visitors to stroll and enjoy a lovely day. Clustered around the Green are many of the city’s original churches and commercial buildings in the historic business district. The Green is also used regularly for festivals, concerts, and Worthington's annual Market Day.

Worthington's Village Green is enhanced by the canopy of beautiful trees. The Green would not be what it is — our public gathering place — without a well-planned and cared-for landscape."

Location of the tree: Worthington Public Square
