Community members are invited to be part of a special Memory Garden in Veterans Memorial Park at Highland Avenue and Farm Lane in Ambler, PA.

The Memory Garden includes a variety of trees and shrubs that have interest throughout the four seasons. There are benches, engraved pavers, and artwork/sculpture.

The Memory Garden is funded through direct contributions. Fundraising activities are ongoing and continue now that the garden is installed. You can help and support this effort in three ways: 1) Make a financial contribution; 2) Volunteer time to help sustain this special place; 3) Purchase an inscribed memorial brick.
