In Honor Of...

Release Date: Thursday, September 4, 2014

Our parks, beaches, and open spaces are part of what makes living in Glencoe so special. The gift of a park bench, picnic table, or tree is a great way to honor a loved one or celebrate a memorable occasion while supporting the Glencoe Park District.


A tree is a wonderful way to remember someone you love, for a birthday, anniversary or memorial gift. Each year, the Glencoe Park District dedicates and plants trees in its parks in honor of and in memory of special individuals, couples and groups. Many varieties of trees and site locations are available for your donation. While final selection of the site and species remains with the Park District staff, we will work with you to select the type of tree and park location. All installations will be completed by the Park District and planted at the proper time, depending on the variety chosen. The price includes the tree, installation, plaque and continued maintenance of the tree. Donate a tree


Share marriage proposals, memorials, birthday wishes, and more by adopting a park bench or personalizing a picnic table. The Park District will work with you to select the best location in a park, on a path, or at the Beach. A bronze plaque with an inscription will be affixed to your donation. Adopt a Park Bench or Picnic Table


Want to help beautify one of Glencoe’s parks? Donation options are available for a variety of projects. If you are interested in custom donation, please call (847) 835-7531.
