Letters to the Trees


Celebrate Arbor Day by thanking the park’s trees for all that they do. As an accredited, Level II Arboretum Madison Square Park has over 300 trees and a rich diversity of species to enjoy. 

Mailboxes with writing materials will be located throughout the park for parkgoers to show their love for any tree in the park by writing a handwritten letter, composing a poem, or creating a drawing. Mailboxes will feature the park’s arboretum map which you can also download here. 

On Tuesdays, staff will be on-site with further writing materials and letters will be displayed in the park for all to view along (near the reflecting pool).
