Engraved Paver Order Form

The gift of an engraved paver is an enduring way to honor a friend, colleague, loved one, or a past or present member of the United States Armed Forces.

You have three choices for where you would like to place your paver in the Arboretum.

The Tribute Garden is located at the front of the Arboretum near the parking area.  Pavers surround the fountain area.

The Durwood Baggett Contemplation Garden is located in the rear of the Arboretum in the left corner of the grounds.  It is a very quiet and peaceful place.  This garden was created in honor of all those people who have served in one of the Armed Forces in the U.S.

The Koi Pond Walkway dedication area is adjacent to the Koi Pond, and in front of the Shade Garden.  It is a beautiful and peaceful spot with the sound of water flowing.
