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 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. The cost of a Memorial Bench range from $2,000+.
The donation of a tree is a symbol of life, growth, and strength. Honoring your loved one with the donation of a tree will not only serve as a tribute, but will also enhance the eco-system for surrounding wildlife. Included in the cost of a tree donation is an engraved brick to be placed in the Memorial Tree Court located in John Prince Park in Lake Worth, FL. The total cost for a tree and brick is $500.
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 will be $250.
In the near future, we will have an exciting new addition to our Memorial Program! New construction at John Prince Park will bring 5 new dog parks, as well as several brick paved walkways for park patrons to pay tribute to their furry best friends! Please stay tuned for more information on how to reserve your space in advance!
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.
