City Park - is the largest developed park in Montenegro. The park became rich in numerous plant species thanks to the former custom that required every sailor who was related to Tivat to bring back from their voyages a tree to be planted in this park.
Guided by this custom in 2006 the action called “Your Tree in Our Park” was initiated. Every citizen can donate a tree to be planted in the park for the occasions important for their personal lives (marriages, births, graduating etc.). In this way the park gets renewed and people get even more tied to it.
The most important plant species grown in the park are as follows:
Araucaria bidwilli (Bunya Bunja Pine)
Pinus halepensis (Tree of Alpo Pine)
Magnolija Grandiflora ( Magnolia Grandiflora)
Magnolija liliflora (Lily Magnolia)
Pinus pinea (Stone Pine)
Cedrus Atlanticus (Atlas Cedar Cones)
Cupressus semervirens (Mediterranean Cypress)
Platanus occidentalis (Plane Trees - Sycamores)
Platanus orijentalis (Oriental Plane)
Melia azedarach (Chinaberry)
Ceratonia silqua (Carob Tree)
Aeculus hippocastanum (Horse Chestnut)
Ablizia julibrissin (Persian Silk Tree)
Laurus nobilis (Bay Laurel)
Prunus laurocerasus (Cherry Laurel)
