The Batavia Park District Memorial Program is an uplifting way to celebrate and commemorate the life of a loved one or to express sympathy or condolences for the loss of a friend or family member. The District offers several options to memorialize your loved one or to commemorate a special date or occasion. *Placement along the Batavia Riverwalk is no longer an option for a memorial bench or tree due to spatial limitations.
Memorial Trees leave a lasting legacy, which will grow stronger and blossom with life, year after year. They serve as a living tribute and celebration of life and will be enjoyed by countless generations to come. Trees are planted twice a year, in the spring and fall. Click here for a list of options.
The cost for a Memorial Tree is $800, which includes the cost of the tree, stone marker and installation. Tree options vary based on season. The plaque can include up to four lines of text with a maximum of 24 characters per line. Please note that staff cannot guarantee placement at your preferred or alternate requested location.
The warranty on a memorial tree is three years. The Batavia Park District will maintain and/or replace the tree for three years from the date of installation. The plaque will be maintained by the District as long as the tree remains in place. In the event a tree dies after three years, the donor will be given the opportunity to purchase a replacement tree.
Memorial Benches add beauty to a park as well as provide a useful amenity for patrons to enjoy as they relax and appreciate their surroundings.
The cost for a 4 foot bench is $2,550. The cost of a 6 foot bench is $3,000. Cost includes the bench, plaque and installation. The plaque can include up to four lines of text with a maximum of 24 characters per line. Please note that staff cannot guarantee placement at your preferred or alternate location.
