The Friends of Dobbs Ferry Waterfront Park provide vital resources that keep the park green and beautiful. Recent projects include:
  • The Friends arranged for the planting of eight new trees at various park locations, all selected for appropriateness to climate and site.

  • The Friends created "Friends Meadow" at Willow Point - featuring native and pollinator plants. They are maintained by our volunteers. 

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

  • The Friends hired three experienced 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.

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