The Parks and Recreation Memorial Tree and Park Bench Policy was established in 2003. Since its inception, PRCS has been able to accommodate the following donations:
NUMBER OF BENCH & PLAQUE DONATIONS
NUMBER OF TREE & PLAQUE DONATIONS
Various Family/Friend Donations
Centennial Year Donations
Tree Lodi Donations
As space for benches has become limited, staff and the Parks and Recreation Commission need to develop alternative opportunities for donors to commemorate their loved ones. As such, donor memorial opportunities are on hold at this time until a new policy is implemented. Alternative donor memorial opportunities could include benches and plaques, other amenities for parks, and the acceptance of donations for capital and maintenance projects or recreation programs with names incorporated on donor memorial board(s). If you are interested in honoring your loved one(s) through a donation to PRCS, please firstname.lastname@example.org so that we may add your information to a list. We will contact you once the new policy has been established.
If you are interested in a memorial tree, please contact Tree Lodi, Inc. PRCS partners with Tree Lodi to promote planting of trees and maintenance and preservation of Lodi’s urban forest.
