Memorial Programs

Memorial Donations

The City of Bryant Parks and Recreation Department offers memorial programs for those who wish to contribute to the beauty of select parks by purchasing a tree to be planted, a wall paver or a park bench to be dedicated in someone's honor or memory.

Memorial Tree Donation

A memorial tree is a long-lasting opportunity to remember a loved one. At the same time, it improves the beauty and quality of the City of Bryant's parks.
The memorial trees The Parks and Recreation Department has chosen are White Oak, Schumard Oak and Willow trees to be included in the memorial program. These trees are durable and high temperature tolerant.

You may select a specific park for your tree donation from the list on the application. The tree's exact location will be determined by city staff. Memorial trees will be planted adjacent to trails or near parking lots within a chosen park. This includes:
  • Memorial tree with an accompanying memorial bronze marker is approximately $350.
  • Memorial tree without an accompanying marker is approximately $250.
*Features 10 year warranty and memorial placard commemorating individual or organization in any park of the donors choice.

Memorial Bench Donation

Memorial benches provide another option to honor a loved one, as well as offer respite to park visitors to help them enjoy their surroundings. Benches may be installed at any time, weather permitting. Donors will be notified once the bench and marker have been installed, and will be made aware of its location. The city cannot guarantee a specific installation date. All benches will be installed adjacent to trails or near parking lots within a chosen park.

The cost for a memorial bench or picnic table is $750. Options are:
  • Installation of a 6 foot recycled plastic bench
  • Rubber coated, metal picnic table
