Memorial Tree Program
The City of Tipp City has established a Memorial Tree program, whereby interested citizens can purchase a tree that will be planted in Kyle Park to memorialize an individual. The cost of a tree is $250.00. Donors to the program may select from the following four species: Ginkgo, Red Oak, American Linden and Hybrid London Plane Sycamore. Planting takes place either in the spring or fall, depending on the time of the donation. The donated tree is planted and cared for by the City Park Department. If a tree dies/needs replaced, (24 months after planting), the tree can be replaced at the donor’s cost. For more information and an application, please click here.
The 1.85 acre Tipp City Dog Park is located at the far east (rear) of Kyle Park, and was dedicated on June 21, 2008. The Dog Park is divided into separately fenced areas for large and small dogs, and includes a fully fenced perimeter with double-gates, benches, picnic table, and a water fountain that accommodates dogs and their owners. The dog park establishes a specific and secure area for people to let their dogs run legally off-leash, giving the dogs enjoyable and healthful exercise.
