Memorial Tree Planting

The City of St. Catharines Memorial Tree Program allows the public the opportunity to plant a living memorial of a loved one in a public park or trail. It also provides friends and families the opportunity to contribute towards the greening of St. Catharines in the memory of loved ones.

Memorial Bench Program

The City of St. Catharines Memorial Bench Program allows the public the opportunity to pay tribute to a person(s) or occasion by donating a bench for installation in a public park or along a public walkway. 

There is a new program policy in place as of January 2018, any benches placed are on 10-year terms. Please review the memorial bench form for further details.

Please Note: With pier reconstruction and the high volume of existing memorial benches in Lakeside Park, the City of St. Catharines will NOT be placing any benches in Lakeside Park or on the piers once completed.

Forms for memorial benches must be submitted no later than April 1 for a spring installation, or Sept. 1 for a late fall installation.
