Sometimes people leave items and decorations on objects in the park. This may show their sentimental attachment to, or respect for, what one of the many memorials scattered throughout the area represents. Someone provided this memorial statue with a scarf for winter. I’ve posted about this particular monument before, but it was summer, and it was unadorned at the time. The reason for this memorial is heartbreaking. I hope nothing like this ever happens again.
Another memorial in the park – I don’t know how old this child was, or the circumstances surrounding his death, but many have left tokens of remembrance. These two photos were taken in the summer.
And for Christmas, someone has decorated the nearby tree with ornaments.
These tokens show that though some may be gone, they are never forgotten.
