Give the gift that will last for generations. Through our Commemorative Tree and Bench Program you can establish a memorial and beautify your parks at the same time. Purchasing a tree or bench is a perfect way to celebrate graduations, a birth, milestone birthdays, public service, anniversaries or as a lasting memorial to a loved one. All tree and bench gifts will be publicly recorded by engraving the name of the person or event commemorated on a brass leaf placed on the Commemorative Tree located at the Spring Avenue Recreation Center .
Trees and benches may be purchased anytime throughout the year, however, tree planting will take place in the spring or fall. Park District staff will determine the location for the tree or bench.
