Tombstone Cleaning Workshop - June 3, 2017

Kelowna’s Memorial Park Cemetery is the final resting place of many of Kelowna’s founding people. Time has taken its toll on some of the tombstones in the pioneer section, by keeping them clean and using the proper conservation techniques we can help preserve these historical markers for generations to come.

Please meet at the Memorial Park Cemetery, near the pioneer section. Be sure to wear suitable clothing for working outside!

Tree of Memories

The Tree of Memories program has been offered annually since 1998. Residents and visitors can place an ornament on the tree under the dome in Promontory Green Interment Garden or on the spruce trees in Bennett Memorial Circle from the second week of December to the second week in January. The trees provide a unique opportunity for friends and family to celebrate a loved one's life throughout the holiday season.
