USA Children's & Women's "Holiday Tree Trail” now open

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, AL (WALA) -

USA Children's and Women's Hospital is launching a new holiday tradition. The "Holiday Tree Trail" is a whimsical display of live trees set up at Geri Moulton Children's Park.

Located in a wooded setting along the entrance drive to USA Children's & Women's Hospital, the park provides a tranquil place where children can set aside thoughts of injury and illness, where families can find respite from worry, and where the community can leave behind the stress of everyday life.

The Holiday Tree Trail features 100 decorated Frazier Firs lining the sidewalks, and more than 50 sculptures. Local businesses, community groups, and departments from the hospital sponsored and decorated the trees.

The Holiday Tree Trail is a free event for the entire community. Chris Jett stopped by our studio during FOX10 News at 4 p.m. to talk about how it all came together. You can watch the interview in the accompanying video. The lighted tree display will be open nightly from dusk until midnight. Guests are welcome to visit the display during the daytime, to see all the intricate designs on the trees.
