Annapolis Recreation and Parks has a unique memorial program to honor and remember friends and relatives. The Memorial Tree and Bench Program encourages the purchase of a young tree or park bench to be placed in a park or open space area within the City of Annapolis to honor a special occasion or remembrance that adds beauty to the landscape for countless generations to enjoy.
Whether a tree or bench is selected, the donor will work with the Annapolis Recreation and Parks Department to have it planted or installed (NOTE: trees are planted during fall months to encourage best survival.) If the donor chooses, a card of acknowledgment will be sent to the recipient’s family advising that their loved one has been memorialized or honored in this special way. A photo and description of the location will be included. As an option, the name of the loved one can be engraved on a plaque.
Learn more in the brochure. Please Email Marisa Wittlinger for current pricing.
The names of loved ones are engraved to plaques and put on the symbolic Memorial Tree located in the foyer of the Roger W. "Pip" Moyer Community Recreation Center.
