Fremont Park Bay Tree


"The large, regal bay tree is located on the North side of Fremont Park along P Street near 15th Street. It's a draw for its shade and solace. Often, I just relax and look at the strength and beauty of the tree. What many do not know is that the leaves on the tree provide delicious flavor to soups and stews. I take a couple every time I walk by to keep handy in my spice rack. I know many of my neighbors do the same." -Lizz Lagomarsino, Friends of Fremont Park
