IN LOVING MEMORY Memorial Garden

The Friends of Salt Springs Park Memorial Garden is a designated location in the park where visitors can memorialize their loved ones, precious pets, or a special occasion. Come enjoy the garden. Come rest, reflect, and remember.

The park was developed in 2018 and is dedicated to our lifelong friend Rusty Ely. It is located in a peaceful setting, where visitors can sit and listen to the birds, the rustling of the leaves, and the waters of nearby Fall Brook. The garden is on the west side of Overlook Trail, about midway along the trail from the parking lot, and is ADA accessible.

Our memorial options include:

  • installing a maintenance-free, permanent memorial bench
  • planting a tree, flowering bush, or perennial plant, chosen from our list of approved native species
  • mounting a memorial plaque on a specially placed piece of Pennsylvania bluestone

For detailed information on bench designs, approved plantings, and our services and fees, or to arrange a tour of the garden, please contact us.
