McGuire Lake Memorial Walkway

A Lasting Legacy

The McGuire Lake Memorial Walkway is a lasting way to remember loved ones, honor friends, say thank you and celebrate life. Just a short stroll from the core of Downtown Salmon Arm, McGuire Lake Park is an oasis for all to enjoy its natural beauty. Dotted with benches and picnic tables this is a favourite location to enjoy a picnic or family gathering.

The Walkway is connected to a walking trail along the lake that provides wildlife viewing opportunities of various migratory birds, painted turtles and water lilies. Visit the Japanese Friendship Gate and relax in the oasis that is McGuire Lake.

The seasonal water fountain in the middle of the lake is a beautiful backdrop for reflecting on the memories of loved ones.

A Unique Memorial

The Shuswap Community Foundation, through a partnership with the City of Salmon Arm, offers a unique opportunity for creating a memorial for you and your loved ones.

Welcome a child. Congratulate a grad. Remember a beloved. Celebrate an anniversary. Celebrate an anniversary. Recognize a volunteer. Thank an employee. Mark a business milestone. Commemorate an event.

We invite you to purchase a personalized engraved brick to be placed on the Walkway. With your purchase of a memorial brick, you are creating a permanent legacy that honors your special bond with those that are dear to you.
