The late Peter Carr’s family has dedicated a memorial bench in Prospect Park, located roughly 100 yards south of Endale Arch, facing the northeastern edge of Long Meadow, between the fourth and fifth lampposts. The plaque is appropriately inscribed for a financial engineer. This location is where Peter and his wife, Carol, would begin their runs through the park. When you visit, we invite you to upload a photo or share a memory of Peter Carr on Padlet.
