Any town named after a tree is best in Goodwin’s book, and he’s always excited to deliver mulch in Royal Oak so he can explore the City of Trees. Royal Oak has been an official Tree City USA for more than 35 years, and with more than 350 acres of parks to explore, Goodwin always finds a new tree to climb when he’s in town. He loves to visit Cummingston Park with its extensive nature trail and 25 acres of fun, or he’ll show off his moves at Memorial Park’s skate park in between his appointments. He might even get to know his more than 280 species of animal cousins at the Detroit Zoo in Royal Oak, and he especially loves the African Forest and Penguinarium exhibits. For local wildlife, it’s off to join the guided nature walks from the Royal Oak Nature Society to see owls, pond life, wildflowers, and more. To keep fit for so much excitement and more deliveries, Goodwin will work his way through the fitness stations at Lockman Park, and to keep up with the latest horticulture happenings, he checks in at the Royal Oak in Bloom garden show and fair in May. With so much to see and do, Goodwin is always glad to plan Royal Oak mulch delivery runs so he can spend time in this diverse and eclectic city.
