Memorial Park Bench, Tree and Memory Path Program
The Memorial Park Bench, Tree and Memory Path Program allows individuals to purchase and dedicate a bench, tree or path paver in honor of a loved one. This dedication provides a lasting remembrance in honor of a loved one and enhances the meaning of a bench or tree to observers. The gift is also a valuable contribution to the park system to be used and enjoyed by all.
