Commemorate a Life, Occasion, or Group
Donate a Tree, Brick or Bench

In select parks throughout the Park District of Franklin Park system, you can beautify your neighborhood by donating a tree, paving brick, or park bench. This program is a timeless way to celebrate a wedding, anniversary, birth of a child, or to memorialize a loved one – while making a tax-deductible contribution to your community.

In many cases you may choose the type and size of tree planted based on the selected park and donation level. Bench or paving brick donation opportunities are available during park developments or renovations, which are announced in the Recreations newsletter. To learn more, please contact the Parks Foundation at 847-455-2852.
