Commemorative programs

A donation through the City’s commemorative program is a lasting and rewarding way to honour the memory of a loved one, celebrate a special occasion or recognize an accomplishment.

Your donation becomes a special tribute for your occasion, as well as an enduring gift to all Londoners within our public parks.

There are several options available for commemorative features, including trees, benches, our memory wall or naturalization plantings.

Commemorative benches

Commemorative benches offer a place for peaceful reflection. Benches can be installed in most parks across the city, and the specific location will be determined through consultation with our program coordinator. Included with your donation is a personalized plaque and maintenance for the lifetime of the bench.

The donation amount for a commemorative bench is $3,400.00. If you would like to donate towards naturalization plantings, please contact memory@london.ca.

Commemorative trees

Help enhance our “Forest City” by making a donation to plant a commemorative tree in one of our parks. The City is part of the unique Carolinian eco-region. Carolinian trees improve air quality, provide habitat for animals, create shade and look beautiful too. Locations may be determined based on individual park needs and optimal tree growth.

The donation amount for a commemorative tree is $500.00. If you would like to donate towards naturalization plantings, please contact memory@london.ca.

Memory wall

Located in Springbank Park’s Graham Arboretum, the memory wall features granite tablets with personalized engravings in a peaceful and reflective natural setting. For a donation amount of $1500.00, a custom inscription will be included during the annual autumn engraving of the wall. A portion of your donation may be used to help maintain and enhance the Arboretum.

If you would like to donate towards naturalization plantings, please contact memory@london.ca.

Naturalization plantings

A donation of $20.00 would be used toward sustaining London’s parks and natural areas by supporting community planting projects. These plantings increase tree cover, create wildlife habitat and increase interest from park visitors.

If you would like to donate towards naturalization plantings, please contact memory@london.ca.
