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.
Check back for the next Tombstone Cleaning Workshop (dates TBA).
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 first week of December to the first week in January. The trees provide a unique opportunity for friends and family to celebrate a loved one's life throughout the holiday season.
The 2020 Tree of Memories runs from December 1, 2020 - January 9, 2021. Ornaments from previous years are placed on the memorial trees as a perpetual memory. Those who wish to keep their ornaments should ensure they are removed by January 10, 2021.
