The Angel of Hope is a place of peaceful remembrance for all that have experienced a loss of a loved one. Annually the Parks and Recreation team hosts the Candlelight Memorial on December 6th at the Arboretum. This year in lieu of the typical gathering and formal program we will be offering planned visits throughout the day. We invite families to register for a specific timeslot to ensure one family at a time to allow for safe practice of social distancing. Candles will be provided at the base of the Angel. Please bring your own lighter.

sign up HERE.

As the timeslots fill up, please remember that the Arboretum is always open. Please feel free to visit the park and the Angel of Hope anytime during park hours. We will plan to leave any extra candles and copies of the poem at the Arboretum until Friday, December 11. Anyone visiting during this time is welcome to use these items while supplies last.
