Tribute Park Gets Spruced Up For It's My Park Day

May 25, 2007
By Miriam Rosenberg

A small group of Rockaway residents came together last Saturday to get one of the top parks in the borough, Tribute Park, ready for the summer season as part of the city's It's My Park Day.
Volunteers used the opportunity to clean weeds and dirt, and fill in the spaces between the bricks that lay in the park.
The cleaning of Tribute Park was one of the over 150 projects in neighborhood parks across the five boroughs.

Tears And Roses As Rockaway Remembers Its Heroes

Sept 11, 2007
Dual Tribute Park Ceremonies Highlight September 11 Events
Rockaway remembered those who died in the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center six years ago, last Tuesday at Tribute Park. The dual ceremonies were touching and the setting, right on Jamaica Bay, was perfect, as more than 100 local family members and residents gathered to commemorate the day. At 8:48 a.m., family members and community activists placed roses on the compass that makes up the central portion of Tribute Park, as the names of the local residents who died that day were read. The Tribute Park flag was raised to half-staff. Roses were also placed on the Firefighter's Memorial that celebrates the life of all of the FDNY members who died that day. The roses were donated by 1-800-Flowers. At 7:48 that evening, another ceremony was held, with the flag lowering and a rendition of "Taps."
