Memorial Donation Program

Franklin Park Borough has started a Memorial Donation Program which provides residents with an excellent opportunity to donate a park bench or tree in memory or honor of a loved one or special person.   Any memorial will be expected to enhance the park without hindering the quality of the open space.  Policies and procedures have been established which describe the process through which applicants are encouraged to work with Borough staff to determine how a memorial can enhance the experience of park users as well as meet the needs of the donor. 

The following are the types of donations that can be made through the Memorial Donation Program:

  • Bench Donation: The cost of a park bench donation is $1,200 which includes a 6' recycled plastic bench, plaque, installation and maintenance.
  • Tree Donation:  The cost of a tree donation is $600 which includes the tree (to be determined by Borough staff), plaque, installation and maintenance.  

You can contact the Borough Offices for more information or view the Memorial Donation Program Policy and Procedures  and Memorial Program Donation Request Form.  Donors must download and complete the Memorial Donation Request Form in its entirety and submit it to the Borough by mail to the address listed on the form or by email to
