Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation Memorial Program
Palm Beach County’s Parks and Recreation Department offers many opportunities to honor or memorialize the people you love, admire, and miss in your life by acknowledging a special birthday, a place of importance, or a life milestone. Please consider some of the following park amenities to commemorate your special memory, while enhancing your park system. Contact our Business Development Section firstname.lastname@example.org to learn about our Gifts to Parks program!
Our molded concrete benches will stand the test of time, and are resistant to the harsh Florida elements. Each bench will come with an engraved bronze plaque that can be personalized with up to 4 lines of text. Cost of benches are $2,800 for waterfront locations, $2,400 for non-waterfront locations.
We offer opportunities to purchase engraved brick pavers in two of our park locations. Currently, donors may purchase a brick paver to be engraved with up to 3 lines of text and will be placed on the brick courtyard at our beach front Kreusler Park located in Lake Worth. The cost for the engraved brick and its installation is $250.
New feature: Lake Woof Dog Park, located in John Prince Park, now features five recognition brick sites to commemorate a special pet in your life. Whether celebrating a new 4-legged addition to the family, a birthday, or memorializing a beloved pet’s passing, you will forever have a special place in our newest and largest dog park. The cost for the engraved brick and its installation until December 31, 2017 is $100. Beginning January 1, 2018, cost for each brick is $250.
Palm Beach County pays tribute to its veterans by offering the complimentary engraving of the names of local fallen soldiers. This marble monument is placed at the Lighted Armed Forces Veterans’ Memorial located at Lake Lytal Park in West Palm Beach. Other memorial options at this site include the installation of engraved bricks as well as molded concrete benches at the courtyard. Please contact Business Development if you would like to have a name added to this memorial, or if you would like to purchase a bench or brick.
