The Friends of the Dobbs Ferry Waterfront Park provides vital resources that keep the park green and beautiful. Some of our recent projects include:

  • The Friends arranged for the planting of two new willow trees at Willow Point.

  • The Friends arranged for the expert trimming of the park’s older trees.

  • The Friends hired three expert arborists and landscape designers to catalog the trees, provide suggestions for further plantings and work with Village personnel to maintain the trees.

  • The Friends employed an arborist and videographer to create training videos on tree care for Village park staff. These videos are also useful for anyone with trees on their property. See the tree planting video here, along with links to additional videos on pruning.

  • The Friends convened volunteer weeding sessions of the Park's plant beds, beginning May 2020 and continuing through July. Thank you to all our volunteers! If you would like to become volunteer weeder, please leave us a message

  • In November of 2020, the Friends made possible the planting of three magnolia trees in Willow Point. In addition, the memorial trees for Joey Omboni and Ricky White were replaced. 

An important aspect of our mission is to spot and report needed repairs and maintenance. At the Friends request, the Village:

  • Removed unsightly dead tree stumps, which were also safety hazards. 

  • Mulched the playground base and trees

  • Repaired the bricks and pavement at the boat dock and Comfort Station

  • Fixed the broken park lights

  • Cleans goose droppings off the walkways twice a week
