Tree & Bench Dedication

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. Please note: requests cannot be accepted for Lake Ellyn Park.

Commemorative Trees

The Commemorative Tree Program is available to remember individuals, organizations and special events such as birthday and anniversaries. A new tree can be planted, or an existing one can be dedicated. A tree tag is provided with the purchase of a new tree.

Commemorative Benches

A commemorative bench is a great way to honor a loved one. People may donate a new bench or dedicate an existing bench. A brass plaque is optional with the purchase of a new bench.
