Pet Memorials

Honor and remember your pet and the times you spent together in Vail.  Our custom pet park allows you to have a special reminder of your beloved pet.

The Park

The Vail Community has long acknowledged the need for a memorial park so our 'pioneers' and their families can experience this im portant legacy in what is perhaps the final chapter in making our community stronger and more complete.

Thanks to the vision of the founders and the commitment of the Town of Vail Council an undeveloped site of some 11+ acres has been transformed into a tasteful and meditative memorial park.

Vail Memorial Park enables us to celebrate life and death within our own boundaries and to create an enduring repository of community history to honor the lives of those who have come before us.

For many of us, Vail was to be a short lived destination in our transient lives, but something happened along the way. We fell in love with the place and people, and now we've come to understand that Vail is the place we want to be remembered in death as in life. All who feel connected to Vail have a place here.

A crushed stone pathway system connects the memorial areas to the paved Town of Vail recreation path. You may access this from the east by utilizing the parking area by the 180/East Vail exit and Bighorn Road. No direct vehicle access is available to the memorial park, however, arrangements can be made in advance for a golf cart to transport those who may require assistance to the park. During the winter months the paths are snow covered and accessible by snowshoes or skis.
