Sponsorship and Dedications

Leave a legacy for the future

Our Sponsorship and Dedication Program offers a unique way to honour someone special and give back to the community by enhancing the growth and beautification of local parks and trails. This program offers a way for individuals to:

  • honour the memory of a loved one who has passed away
  • honour a dedicated service member
  • celebrate a birthday, wedding, graduation, retirement or other special event

Sponsorship and dedication opportunities include:

Adopt-a-Trail

The Adopt-a-Trail program offers the opportunity for individuals and organizations to contribute to the community and become recognized for their efforts towards a clean and healthy trail network.

Groups, schools, individuals and corporate organizations are encouraged to adopt a selected trail or area for a minimum of three years and visit the trail at least twice each year to help keep it clean.

A sign will be erected on the trail bearing the name of the group or individual as recognition for the valuable contribution to our community. City staff will help you select an appropriate section of trail to adopt.

Dedicate a park bench

Many people have a favourite park that holds special meaning to them. A dedication bench is a way to pay tribute to someone special or to inscribe a positive message that will add uniqueness to the community and provide a tranquil place to stop and rest.

Park bench dedication projects include a park bench, personalized inscription plaque on the bench, concrete slab placed under the bench, installation and future maintenance.

Park bench dedication projects are income tax deductible. You will receive a charitable donations receipt upon project completion.

 

Tree dedication

Tree dedication

Trees filter our air, reduce soil erosion and water pollution, provide us with shade and are a habitat for wildlife. A tree dedication is a meaningful way to express sympathy, offer congratulations, leave a legacy for the future and help improve our community.

Dedication tree projects include the installation and maintenance of a tree. A personalized dedication marker will be placed by the tree with the message of your choice.

Dedication tree projects are income tax deductible. You will receive a charitable donations receipt upon project completion.

Playground components

Playgrounds contribute to the health and imagination of children and there are many ways you can help improve a playground. Some options include purchasing a swing, slide, sand lot or an entire structure. We can accommodate what you would like to provide.

Playground component dedication projects are income tax deductible. You will receive a charitable donations receipt upon project completion.
