Memorial Trees and Benches
Memorial Tree and Bench Donation Program
A Memorial Tree or Bench could be the prefect way to honor the birth of a child, memorialize loved ones, or a as unique wedding or anniversary gift. There are few other gifts that will be as long lasting as a tree or bench. Both trees and benches are also an excellent way to give back to the community and provide a more enjoyable recreation experience for residents and visitors of Parkville for many years to come.
