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. 

An engraved bronze nameplate will be installed on the donor’s choice of memorial plaques, currently available in Antioch, Heritage and Shawnee Mission parks, and Tomahawk Hills Golf Course.

Memorial Benches & Bench Plaques - $1,000

Donors may request a Memorial Bench be placed in a JCPRD park, golf course, or recreation facility. Two bench styles are available: the contour bench, with backrest, and the trailside bench, seat only, no backrest. Installation and maintenance of both are included in the price of each. 

An engraved bronze bench plaque, with the name and a brief message relating to the person or pet being memorialized, will be installed onto the selected bench (on the backrest of the contour style and seat of the trailside). JCPRD will repair or replace any damaged or broken bench or Bench Plaque at no additional cost to donor.

Acknowledgement of Donation

At donor’s request, an acknowledgement letter will be sent to donor, honoree (if a living memorial), or the family of the person being memorialized.
