JCPRD memorials allow patrons an opportunity to celebrate a loved one’s life, accomplishments or memory in a beautiful, natural setting. Memorials are also available for pets.

Memorial Tree & Rosebush Program - $500

Contributions to the Memorial Tree and Rosebush Program can be made for acquisition, planting and maintenance of trees in a variety of JCPRD parks, golf courses and recreation facilities. Rosebush contributions benefit the Helen S. Cuddy Memorial Rose Garden in Antioch Park. 

Your contribution includes a bronze nameplate to be installed on a plaque located in one of our parks below:

  • Antioch Park
  • Heritage Park
  • Shawnee Mission Park
  • Tomahawk Hills Golf Course 

The tree variety, placement and time of planting will be at the park managers discretion. Your contribution will help keep our parks beautiful by allowing us to choose the best variety or tree and ideal location.

Memorial Benches & Bench Plaques - $1,000

Donors may request a Memorial Bench be placed in a JCPRD park, golf course, or recreation facility by filling out and submitting the Memorial Designation Form. Donor is able to request the location for the placement of the bench. Upon approval by the park manager, and receipt of payment, the bench and plaque will be ordered through the Parks and Golf Courses Division. If your location request cannot be met the park manager will make suggestions for another location within the park.

The bench is 6’ long, has a black powder-coated steel frame and resin wood slats. The contour bench has 2” x 4” slats. It is surface-mounted with anchor bolts on a 4’ x 6’ concrete slab. This design was selected for its durability, ease of maintenance and uniformity throughout JCPRD’s parks and golf courses. JCPRD staff will install and maintain the benches and plaques.  Damaged or broken benches and/or plaques will be repaired or replaced at no additional cost to donor for 10 years.

MEADOWBROOK PARK UPDATE: With Meadowbrook Park opening this year, and the bench-style and plaques being different than our other parks, we are working on the policy, pricing and details of how memorials will be placed in Meadowbrook Park. If you are interested in having a memorial placed in Meadowbrook Park please contact Cindy Lawrence whose information can be found on this page. We will contact you as soon as the details are ready and will update this page accordingly.
