Parks dedication program
Celebrate, remember, and honour a special life event through our Parks Dedication Program
Fund a memorial bench, picnic table, playground equipment, bicycle rack or other park amenity to commemorate a significant event or person.
Our installation window for park amenities has closed for 2019. New installations and renewals of existing amenities will resume spring 2020.
Available park amenities and pricing
These are the park amenities that are available under the dedication program. All fees are tax deductible and include installation and maintenance for 10 years.
- Memorial benches — $2,220
- Picnic tables — $3,000
- Playground equipment — Cost varies. Contact us for details.
- Bicycle racks — Cost varies. Contact us for details.
Memorial benches and picnic tables include an inscribed plaque with a custom message. There is currently a waiting list for memorial bench donations.
Selecting a site for your park amenity
We can only install new amenities in our named, urban parks. We are unable to install new amenities within our wilderness trails, beaches, or along small, neighbourhood trails.
Parks eligible to receive new benches
These parks would benefit from new memorial benches. Some parks no longer have space for benches, particularly those located along the waterfront.
