Unique Tribute to a Loved One
Leave a lasting and unique tribute to loved ones or remember landmark moments in your life with a Heritage Park Memory Bench or Picnic Table. Although it is common to plant a tree in memory of a loved one or to celebrate the birth of a child, memorial benches and picnic tables with a commemorative plaque are a creative way to acknowledge life’s major events. By dedicating a bench or picnic table in honour of a loved one that has passed on, you will have a tangible space to grieve, reminisce and celebrate your friend or family member for years to come. A memory bench or table not only marks the lives and times of special people, but your donation also provides comfort for today’s Park guests and helps Heritage Park preserve the past for future generations.
