Living Tribute Program

Honor a loved one or significant event in your life with a tree or park bench. Your contribution adds to the beauty already present in Normal Parks. 

Say it with a Tree...

For $300, give the gift of a tree which benefits everyone who enjoys our parks. Choose from a variety of (6) different trees: Bald Cypress, Flowering Crabapple, Hybrid Elm, Norway Spruce, Red Maple and Red Oak. Normal Parks and Recreation Department will plant and care for the tree.

Park Bench Recognition Memorials

An attractive 6' Park Bench, complete with a plaque inscribed with your message or loved one's name, is available for a gift of $1,000. Your gift makes a lasting memory and provides park visitors a place to sit and enjoy the surrounding beauty.
