Donating benches, picnic tables, and trees to an Upper Macungie Park is a beautiful way to honor a loved one, or dentate to your community in a lasting, meaningful way.
Your tax deductible donation will be to the Friends of Upper Macungie Township Parks & Recreation Inc. 501c3. Township Staff will help you through the donation process. See more information below.
The Memorial Park Bench Donation Program allows groups and individuals to donate benches to commemorate special events, honor individuals or agencies as memorials to loved ones. To ensure high standards of durability and visual appeal, benches are chosen by Township Staff. Placement locations can be discussed but are ultimately at the discretion of Township Public Works Staff.
The Memorial Tree Donation allows groups and individuals to donate trees to commemorate special events, honor individuals or agencies, or as memorials to loved ones. Trees purchased through the program are planted and/or placed in Township parks. Exact placement and tree breed is at the discretion of the Parks and Recreation Department.
Each tree costs $200. This fee includes the tree, installation and the continued maintenance of the tree (pruning, mulching, etc.). You may purchase one 4 x 6 plague of your choosing to be placed at the foot of the tree. After the tree is planted, the contact person will receive a confirmation of the planting location. Tree installation is weather dependent and will vary depending on time of purchase.
