Memorial Tree or Memorial Bench an Excellent Gift for Mother's Day

Mother's Day is less than a month away; consider gifting a Memorial Tree or a Memorial Bench this year. Through the Village's Memorial Tree and Bench Program anyone can provide a unique dedication to honor a friend, relative, or member of an organization by placing a tree or bench in one of Bellevue’s Parks. This dedication provides a lasting memory and enhances the meaning of a tree or bench to others.  The gift is also a valuable contribution to our park system to be used and enjoyed by all.
