The legacy of village residents can be remembered through the Memorial Tree and Park Bench Donation Program. This program was established in 1995 for residents who wish to memorialize a departed family member or friend, or to commemorate a special occasion. Since this time, several trees and benches have been donated and are located through the Village’s many parks. Trees and benches are placed according to the Memorial Tree and Bench Program Policy established by City Council.
The Parks, Trails, and Recreation Department staff works closely with
donors to determine the type of memorial and the location of the
memorial. Standard plaques are used on benches and rocks near the tree
memorials. Donors can also work with staff to hold a ceremony at the
time of a tree planting or installation of a bench.
