2023 Memorial Bench applications closed
We are no longer accepting applications for the Parkland Memorial Benches for the 2023 season. Applications received in 2023 will be installed in 2024 in the order they were received.
This program provides individuals, groups and organizations with the opportunity to beautify parks in Strathcona County by planting trees or dedicating a bench in remembrance, observance or acknowledgment of an appropriate event, occasion or individual. The Parkland Memorial Program is only for installation on Strathcona County park spaces.
Broadmoor Lake Park, Woodbridge Farms Lake and Broadmoor Public Golf Course have reached capacity and are not accepting new applications for trees or amenities. Smeltzer House has reached capacity and is not accepting new applications for trees.
Requests are accepted year-round. Installations take place May through September and trees are planted in the Spring and Fall (weather dependent). Requests received after August 1 cannot be guaranteed installation within the same calendar year. A plaque is installed with the amenity or tree to serve as a lasting tribute.
|Bench with plaque||$2221.60|
|Tree with plaque and cedar wooden post||$2100|
Please note that additional charges may apply if secondary locates are required.
