A Piece of Our City
No matter which way you turn in our city, you are sure to see a beautiful tree, whether it's a Magnolia, a yellow Tabebuia, or a Palm tree as in this picture, or countless other varieties. In fact, the word "Temple" in "Temple Terrace" came from the name of the Temple orange trees that the city was known for. The latter word comes from the beauty of the rolling terraces.
