Memory Meadows

Create a meadow of happy memories with a personalised engraved plaque

Rays Group 2

Celebrate a special occasion or someone’s life and their memory, whilst caring for your local park

Our local park holds special memories for us; going for walks with our partner or friends, learning to ride our bike, walking our dog every day, playing in our sports team. Or we may simply find it a safe and welcoming space to sit and reflect or enjoy the nature around us.

A personalised engraved plaque in one of our Memory Meadows is a long-lasting tribute to your happy memories which you can treasure into the future.

Every plaque purchased supports our work enhancing parks across Bournemouth, Christchurch, and Poole for people and wildlife, so we can all continue to make memories in these special places.

Celebrate your family, friends, and pets

Whether you’re celebrating a special anniversary, birthday, or event, or are wanting to find a way to remember a loved one – a family member, friend, or beloved pet – you can purchase an engraved brass plaque with your own personal message. Your plaque will be displayed on one of our new 6-feet tall Memory Meadow flower sculptures which looks striking and provide a lasting way to celebrate the person or occasion.

Choose from a range of brass plaque designs and have the words of your choice engraved on it. Your engraved plaque will then be attached to one of the flower sculptures and displayed within one of (currently) four local parks across the Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch area:  

  • Bournemouth = Winton Recreation Ground
  • Bournemouth = Redhill Park
  • Christchurch = Mudeford Wood
  • Poole = Alexandra Park 

As more people buy plaques, so the Memory Meadow grows.

Beccy’s birthday gift to Ivy

“Ivy, our cockapoo, is such an important member of our family. An engraved plaque to celebrate her birthday seems such a wonderful idea; I can see it every time I walk though the park – a place that she loves.”
