Memorial Tree Comes To Prospect Park...
as part of the Prospect Park Alliance’s
Commemorative Tree Program, sponsored the planting
of a tree near Dog Beach in the Long Meadow.
The tree will be a living memorial to all the
dogs, past and present, who have played in Prospect
original tree was dedicated on May 10th, 2003,
8am near the "Pools" below
the Tennis House at a public ceremony
at the planting site in the Meadow.
The tree species is known as a Willow
Oak, an “overstory tree,”
one that will grow very tall and provide excellent
shade for relaxing after a swim at the dog beach.
Celebrate Your Dog
In mid-May we gather on a Saturday morning around 8 am and hold a brief celebration of those dogs who meant so much to us. Please join us when you feel up to it.

The FIDO Memorial Tree
Our original tree passed away.....
It was located in the Long Meadow on the path by the little pond. We now have a replacement, a gift of the Prospect Park Alliance - a beautiful White Oak. If you take the path directly down into the meadow from the Picnic House and make a right at the bottom, it's midway between the Picnic House and the Tennis House..
