Bench and Tree Donation Program

The Bench and Tree Donation Program is designed to increase public enjoyment and participation in the Municipality’s parks (including all parks and trails).  Benches and trees make great gifts to both your beneficiary and your favourite park.  Best of all, your donation helps support parks everywhere!

People may make a donation towards new benches or trees provided space is available in the location desired. Donations are also available towards existing benches and trees.  Whether existing or new, a donor recognition plaque will be installed on or near your donation.

Only bench and tree donations are covered by this policy.  A donor requesting any other donation, dedication or memorial must apply to the Parks and Recreation Department.  Although Trent Hills recognizes that donations are often memorials, benches or trees that are donated shall not be used as a shrine or be adorned with additional items at any time.   

To discuss opportunities, please contact the Parks and Recreation Department at 705-653-1900 x 233 or
