BRANSON, Mo – The Branson Parks & Recreation Department is proud to offer a Memorial Bench and Memorial Tree Program to offer citizens an opportunity to memorialize and celebrate a friend or family member by dedicating a bench or tree in their honor, with a personalized nameplate.
Memorial Benches are placed in city parks and along city trails for community members and park visitors to enjoy for years to come. A commemorative nameplate will be placed on the bench and exact placement is determined by parks department staff based on need, usage, and accessibility. The cost of the Memorial Bench Program is $500.00 and includes the cost of the bench, nameplate and installation. Benches are made from 100% recycled plastic and rubber which makes them durable and weather resistant.
Memorial Trees are also placed in city parks and along city trails. A commemorative plaque will be added at the Branson Community Center with the plaques of other Memorial Trees. Park staff will determine the species and placement of the trees and the tree will be cared for as a part of the parks tree management plan. The cost for the Memorial Tree Program is $250.00 and trees are planted in the spring or fall each year.
