The “Gifts for all Seasons” program offers you the opportunity to honor someone special, commemorate an occasion, or establish a memorial with a donation of a park bench, picnic table, tree or grove. You can request that your gift be placed in one of the many parks throughout the Philadelphia Parks & Recreation system. We invite donors to plan a small dedication ceremony once their tree, picnic table or bench is in place. Your donation is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
Upon receiving your tree donation request, a staff member will contact you to discuss the type of tree and location. Over 50 varieties of trees can be planted and you will be able to choose from among many evergreens, hardwoods and ornamentals. Once your choice is made, we will select a healthy ten-foot specimen at the nursery. Because trees are fragile, living things, we plant them when conditions are best, in the spring or fall.
The Fairmount Park Conservancy works as a collaborative partner to lead and support efforts which preserve and improve the Philadelphia Parks & Recreation system in order to enhance the quality of life and stimulate economic development of the Greater Philadelphia Region.Donations to the Fairmount Park Conservancy help us maintain and enhance our parks.
