Through the City’s Memorial Bench & Tree Program, relatives can provide a unique dedication to loved ones by placing a tree or bench in one of Hastings’ parks or along a city trail. This dedication provides a lasting remembrance in honor of a loved one and enhances the meaning of a tree or bench to observers. The gift is also a valuable contribution to the park system to be used and enjoyed by all.
Fill out the form and send along with payment to the City of Hastings. (Contributions are tax deductible.)
Designate the park in which you would like the bench or tree(s) placed. Every effort will be made to accommodate your request, although some parks may not be possible.
Parks and Recreation Department staff will determine the actual location for your memorial. If you do not have a specific park in mind, the City will place your memorial where it is most needed and appreciated.
