Safety Harbor Purchases the Baronoff Park Property

The City of Safety Harbor just celebrated the closing on the Baranoff Park Property Purchase. The Closing took place at Baranoff Park located at the northeast corner of Main Street and 2nd Avenue North.  Safety Harbor Mayor Joe Ayoub signed the closing documents and a reception to celebrate the purchase was held.

On September 17, 2018, The Safety Harbor City Commission unanimously voted in favor of purchasing the Baranoff Park Property. The purpose of the purchase is to preserve the Baranoff Oak Tree in addition to making future park improvements. The Baranoff Oak tree is believed to be the oldest live oak in Pinellas County, estimated to be 200 to 500 years old. In 2004, it was added to a national registry of oak trees maintained by the Live Oak Society of the Louisiana Garden Club Federation and assigned Registry Number 4,760.
