Sponsor a part of your park
Celebrate the people and events in your life by dedicating a bench, picnic table, sculpture, or by planting trees and flowers.
Life is beautiful in a park. Enjoying the shade of a tree or the joy of spring blossoms. Sharing a laugh or just taking in the view.
Bring your generosity to life while marking a special occasion or celebrating a loved one with a named gift to your Saint Paul parks. Your gift maintains and protects our parks for everyone.
For donations that include options, please refer to:
Name a bench or table
You can name an existing park bench or table ($1,500) or refurbish one that’s already in the perfect spot ($3,500). Make a big impact by adding a new bench or table ($5,000 – $10,000 depending on location).
All named dedications are for 10 years and are renewable.
Please note that no bench dedications are currently available in Rice Park. There are very limited options in Como Park or along Mississippi River Blvd.
Dedicate a tree or “seed” the tree and flower funds
Giving a tree is life-affirming and makes the world a better place. The person you are honoring will receive a customized ecard or certificate with the date of the gift and the location of your tree. $650. Please note that new tree dedications are not available in Como Park at this time due to its dense tree canopy.
The spring planting order deadline is March 1; the fall planting deadline is Aug. 1.
“Seed” the tree and funds! When you make a donation of $50 or more, the person you are honoring will receive a customized ecard or mailed certificate as a notification of this special gift.
Sponsor a Sculpture
From icons of art and literature to fountains, murals and the loveable Peanuts gang, Saint Paul Parks are home to more than 80 works of art. Do you have a favorite you would like to name for your family or someone you love?
Dedications are available for two- to ten-year terms. All dedications are renewable.
