Tribute & Memorial Gifts

Life is full of occasions to celebrate – weddings, births, anniversaries, the lives of loved ones lost. The Parks Foundation’s Tribute and Memorial Gift program offers you the opportunity for recognition of special occasions and loved ones with the gift of a tree, bench, or brick for placement in our parks.

Proceeds from your donation go to improving our community parks and facilities.

For questions and to submit forms, please contact Mike Evans at mevans@pdhp.org or call 847.579.4085.
