JOHN McKinn Park, Cronulla, is set to get a lot more leafy, after more than 1200 trees were planted there as part of National Tree Day last Sunday.
Sutherland Shire Council bushcare officer Bill Howse, who co-ordinated the event, said it was a huge success with about 50 people taking part.
"It was a really good turn-out and a really good effort by everyone involved," Mr Howse said.
Mr Howse said 10 bags of weeds were also removed on the day while three piles of mulch were used.
He said the group planted mainly local coastal species.
National Tree Day was founded in 1996 by Olivia Newton-John and Planet Ark.
It has grown to become Australia's largest tree-planting event, with more than 1 million trees planted last year.
