3. The Secret Pet Memorial Tree in Central Park

Secret Christmas tree pet memorial in Central Park

Also in Central Park, you may find this heart warming, makeshift memorial is hidden deep in the woods of the Ramble south of Belvedere Castle. On the tree, you’ll find mostly handmade ornaments, all dedicated to lost furry loved ones. There are laminated photos of pooches and notes to lost felines and other pets among ribbons and bows. While this part of the park is usually quiet, especially during the winter, you might run into another person or two taking a moment to reflect on fond memories of their long-lost companion.
