Memorial Benches and Trees

Memorial benches are just one of the ways the City of Pendleton offers  to recognize an organization or to memorialize a loved one.  Benches may be placed in a City park, along the Pendleton River Parkway, in Olney Cemetery or in the Memorial Garden within the cemetery. Each area has a bench style that we recommend, but all have engraving options. We'd love to tell you more about this program, so please give us a call and we will help you consider your options.

(The bench pictured here is our Memorial Garden bench.)

 

 

MEMORIAL TREES

Honor your loved one with a living memorial or recognize a special occasion.  Dirt Dabblers Garden Club, in connection with the City of Pendleton Parks Department, is now offering a memorial tree program.

  • Donors may choose from a list of approved trees.
  • Donors may choose a Pendleton city park or Olney Cemetery; city staff will determine specific location.
  • The tree is purchased through the Garden Club and the Club arranges planting with the City.
  • Each tree will be marked with a brass marker at the base of the tree and the person's name will be added to a master list posted on bulletin boards in the major parks.
  • For more information contact Jo Manny with Dirt Dabblers Garden Club at 541-276-7439 or Pendleton Parks and Recreation at 541-276-8100.

Thank you to Pendleton Foundation Trust for their generous gift that allowed for installation of the bulletin boards and brass markers at tree locations.
