City of Hamilton – Public Works


This program is designed to facilitate community involvement in enhancing our public parks, trails and green spaces.

Donations of cash or gifts in kind to the Parks program allow for substantial improvements to our parks, and inspire community pride and a sense of place.  

 Commemorative Park Bench and Tree Program

The focus of the Commemorative Bench and Tree Program is to allow residents and organizations the opportunity to make a contribution to a City park in honour of an individual or group, which will also benefit the City's parks and the community as a whole.

Once a bench or tree is donated it becomes the property of the City of Hamilton. Park benches and trees will be maintained at the discretion of staff in accordance with lifecycle analysis.

Residents who would like to donate a bench or a tree in honour of a loved one are able to download the applicable application form below.
