"There is a way that nature speaks, that land speaks. Most of the time we are simply not patient enough, quiet enough, to pay attention to the story." ~Linda Hogan

Marquand Park Trees
Tree Photos from Princeton, NJ, USA
Judge Richard Field helped put the land that is now Marquand Park on track to become the rare and beautiful horticultural-family park that it is today. Judge Field hired some of the most outstanding horticulturalists and gardeners of his day to developed the land, especially by planting exotic and rare trees from around the globe. After Judge Field died this horticultural tradition continued as each new owner (steward) of the land cultivated it with more exotic trees and plants. In 1953 the children of Mr. and Mrs. Allan Marquand donated seventeen acres of this land to Princeton Township for the purpose of being a one-of-a-kind tree and family park, Marquand Park!
