Honor a Loved One
Honor a loved one or celebrate a holiday, birthday or other special occasion with a unique, lasting gift at your favorite MetroPark
Available options include benches, trees and in some locations swings. A commemorative plaque engraved to the donor’s specifications is displayed with each tribute item. Five Rivers MetroParks staff will maintain the item and plaque for a 10-year period. At the end of 10 years, the donor or family will be notified and given the option to re-endow the tribute. If the donor chooses not to renew, the plaque will be removed and given to the donor as a keepsake.
Tribute trees and benches must be left as-is; no personal decorations or mementos may be added.
Donation envelopes are available for memorial services or celebrations. Families may also set up a tribute fund to receive contributions toward a tree, bench or swing. For additional information, please contact Brenda Cox, Development Coordinator, at (937) 277-4839 or fill out the request form:
