Water Works Park Memorial Contributions
Pay tribute to a friend or loved one while supporting Water Works Park
Fishing in the ponds, picnicking under the Arie den Boer Arboretum crabapple blossoms, hiking in Denman Woods or horseback riding along the bridle trails – just as Water Works Park offers a perfect setting for a variety of activities, so too can it serve as a perfect gift for a variety of occasions.
A memorial gift to the urban forest within Water Works Park is a unique and thoughtful way to honor a loved one, celebrate weddings, anniversaries, graduations, or just to let someone know you’re thinking of them. Your tax-deductible gift will help maintain and sustain Water Works Park as one of America’s largest urban parks for the enjoyment of all – now and for future generations.
There are two categories of gifts to the urban forest within Water Works Park: Tribute Gift (in honor/memory of) and Donation Gift (general contribution). Tribute recipients or their families will receive a customized acknowledgment card, without reference to amount, to notify them of your gift. All donors and tribute recipients will be recognized on our website, unless you wish to remain anonymous.
Each year on Arbor Day, one tree will be planted in Water Works Park to honor tribute and donation gifts received that year. A tree planting ceremony will be held for any donors or individuals that are interested in attending.
