The story behind the beautiful trees on the historic Worthington Village Green is now available for residents and visitors to enjoy on the Village Green Walking Tour.

The Worthington Arbor Advisory Committee created a guide that maps and identifies all the trees located on the Village Green. The common and scientific names are given, followed by a brief overview of the species.

Walking tour brochures can be picked up at the Griswold Center, Worthington Libraries and at various downtown locations.


Worthington municipal offices will be closed on Thursday and Friday, Nov. 26 and 27, for the Thanksgiving holiday. The Community Center will be open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day and regular hours on the Friday after Thanksgiving.


Because of the Thanksgiving Holiday, Rumpke's service day will be moved one day from Friday to Saturday. Trash, recycling and yard waste will be picked up Saturday Nov. 28, between the hours of 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. Materials should be set at the curb no earlier than 6 a.m. Friday morning and no later than 6 a.m. Saturday morning.

Those planning to be out of town for the weekend should make arrangements with neighbors to help facilitate pick-up and container removal for the adjusted date.

For the Christmas and New Years holidays, trash collection will again be shifted to the Saturday following each holiday, Dec. 26 and Jan. 2.

More information is available by calling (614) 431-2425.
