Commemorative Program

To Honor a Loved One
The Village of Romeoville Parks and Recreation Department offers a unique opportunity for residents to recognize a special person, event, group or organization through the Commemorative Program. The program offers residents the option to purchase a commemorative tree or bench to be placed in one of the Villages public parks.

The program can be utilized as a memorial for many occasions including the memory of a loved one who has passed, as a dedication to an armed service member, or retiree. In addition, a commemorative tree can also be used to honor someone on a special event or occasion.

Commemorative Trees
The Village of Romeoville Recreation Department trees are 2.5" in diameter and a minimum of 6' in height (see mature dimensions of each tree below). The tree will be planted in a village park with the final location selected by the Recreation Department, based on the donor's requests. The paver will be placed at the base of the tree after growth has been established. The price of each commemorative tree is $350 which includes the tree, delivery, installation, commemorative paver, and maintenance.

Please choose the tree you would like to have planted and place its corresponding number on the Commemorative Program Application (PDF). Additional species must be approved by the recreation department. Tree availability will be confirmed once request is made.
