Through the Memorial Tree and Bench Program, friends and family can provide a unique dedication to loved ones by placing a tree or bench in one of the beautiful parks in the Lemont Park District. This historical dedication provides a lasting remembrance in honor of a loved one and enhances the meaning of a tree or bench to observers or park patrons.

If you are interested in this program, please contact Lauren Raspanti, Manager of Education Services and Community Liaison of the Lemont Park District at 630-257-6787, extension 3031, or by e-mail at
