Gardening seminars are help periodically at the park and experts discuss topics including pruning, propagation, and cultivation. Seminars and educational programs are held at the Franke Pavillion and we invite local Garden Clubs and groups to hold their meetings here and tour the gardens. Park volunteers are available to provide information about the history of the park and the King Family.
A new event, the PKP Photo Walk, provides an opportunity for amateur and professional photographers to discover the many photographic opportunities the park offers. The event includes a tour of picturesque areas followed by a challenge to the participants to spend an hour going back to the areas of their choice to photograph some unique shots
Arbor Day is frequently observed at Pendleton King Park. Tree seedling give-a-ways, guest speakers, a 5K run, tree demonstrations, and a proclamation read by the Mayor of Augusta are part of the day’s activities. The event frequently features the dedication of a tree to an outstanding individual or group which promotes urban forestry in the Augusta area.
