Meadowbrook is a safe place to walk for exercise. Many people use the paved drives for their daily walks and others like to hike the trails in the woods.
Living Tree Memorial
Meadowbrook Park has established a Tree Memorial program by which a person can donate a tree to memorialize someone. The person will be remembered in a Memorial Book that will be located in the Tree Memorial Shelter. The memory page will also be numbered with a locator number so a person wishing to see the tree can easily se where the tree is located on the wall map and then walk to the actual tree. The trees will also be listed in the Memorial Book by species so that school children can use the trees in the park as part of their botany studies.
If you are interested in donating a tree to honor the memory of someone, contact the park office for details. Phone (419) 937-2242.
The trees must be a least 10 to 12 feet in height with at least a 2 to 2 1/2 inch caliper and have a mature height of 40 to 80 feet. The tree must also be indigenous to the area.
