You’ve probably heard by now that someone stole dahlias and a few other plants from the Sequoia Park Flower Garden. This garden is maintained by Parks staff with help from dedicated volunteers who are heartbroken and disappointed. They have invested a lot of time, hard work and love into caring for this beautiful space so that our community and Eureka visitors can enjoy their beauty.

Did you know that some of the stolen dahlias are around 50-80 years old? They’re a tubor that is retained each year after growing making them irreplaceable treasures. These gems can’t simply be bought in a garden shop. If you have any information about these beloved plants, please contact Eureka Community Services at 707-441-4241 or the Parks Division at 707-441-4226.
