|Location||Myatt's Field Park|
|Site class||Notable 1888?|
There are two black mulberries here. A mature tree north-east of the sports pen, on the path parallel with Knatchbull Road. Estimated to have been planted in or near 1888, when the park was laid out by Fanny Wilkinson of the Metropolitan Public Gadens Association (MPGA). The park opened in 1989. But the site was previously a market garden (leased by Joseph Myatt from 1818-1869), so the tree may predate the park. There is a recent planting of M. nigra just west of the mature tree, that was heavy wth fruit in May 2016.
