The King's Forest project at St. Mark's will transform roughly 2.5 acres of unused land into an attractive, forested park, inviting children into interactive explorations of nature.
The entrance will be decorated with ornamental and fruit trees, drawing visitors into a setting akin to a native Texas forest. The forest will hold surprises: a water feature with a trickling stream, a simple amphitheater, meditation paths, a pergola, and a play area covered with Bermuda grass. To encourage tree climbing, the tree selection will largely comprise trees without thorns.
The King's Forest will be unlike any other play area we know of in Corpus Christi.
On November 13, 2014, St. Mark's received a $20,000 donation from Regency Post-Acute Care Centers for The King's Forest project. Pictured in the photograph (from left to right) are Mr. Frank Dominguez, Administrator of Corpus Christi Nursing and Rehabilitation Center; The Rev. John Hardie, Rector of St. Mark's Episcopal Church; and Mr. Don Kivowitz, Founder and Chairman of the Board of Regency Post-Acute Care Centers.
