Commemorate a loved one or friend with a memorial tree or bench
in their favorite park.
The Bristol Parks, Recreation, Youth and Community Services Department is proud to present its
Celebrating a Life: Memorial Programs.
A Memorial Tree or Bench in one of Bristol's public parks is a lovely way to honor family and friends while supporting sustainability.
- Memorials establish a physical location where one can go to remember, grieve, pray, and commune in memory of a deceased loved one.
- A Memorial Tree or Bench can help heal and transform grief, offering lasting comfort, solace, joy, and connection.
- A Memorial Tree creates a living legacy and tribute to someone who has died, benefiting the earth and environment, as well as present and future generations.
- Memorial Benches convey a message of love that will remain for generations to see and visit. Memorial Benches also benefit the community and public, both young and old.
The program is available for Bristol residents only.
