Memorials in Waverley
We all love our beaches cliffs and coastal lands, and the community’s vision is to protect and preserve the beauty and environmental quality of our landscape.
Council values the contribution of local residents and appreciates the difference they make to the community
Council receives many requests for memorial plaques in our open space, and community members make generous offers to donate seats or trees for the plaque settings. Council could not accommodate the number of requests that are regularly received.
As a result our beach parks Plans of Management do not allow memorial plaques.
There are opportunities to honour loved ones through services and programs at the Waverley Cemetery including memorial plaques or the ‘Ivy Vine'.
For more information about these programs visit the Waverley Cemetery website
Trees in memory
Tree planting enhances the landscape and provides opportunities for wildlife habitat. We can provide a tree, without any plaque or other dedication, in memory of a loved one. Residents may currently join the Adopt a Tree program to care for street trees planted in front of their property.
There are opportunites at Centennial Parklands for residents to purchase and install memorial benches, trees and plaques to honour family and friends.
For more information visit the Centennial Parklands website.
Council appreciates the generosity of residents who offer plants for greening the local area, however we do not accept tree donations for parks and reserves.
If you have a tree that you wish to donate you can contact organisations such as Trade a Plant who can offer a service to send your tree to a new home
