Museum Park had new palm trees planted last week, leftovers from a nearby construction project.
The trees were moved from Flagler Street, according to Ryan Rea, who lives nearby.
Construction crews broke ground in May on a 30 month project to rebuild Flagler Street and to make it more pedestrian friendly.
As part of the Flagler rebuild, city planners have promised that the street will have more shade.
Renderings show that the new trees to be planted on Flagler Street will be mostly shade trees, rather than palm trees. There are some palm trees shown in the renderings, however.
It isn’t the first time Museum Park got leftover trees from a nearby construction project.
In 2012, Swire Properties donated forty trees ranging in age from 25 to 150 years old to the Perez Art Museum section of Museum Park.
The trees were removed from the future Brickell City Centre site and transported by barge. They included historic oaks, gumbo limbos and strangler figs.
