Commemorative Benches & Trees

Rock Falls , IL

Run Bike & Walk District

The City of Rock Falls has opportunities available to memorialize your loved ones by purchasing a bench or a tree to be placed in RB&W District Community Park. Can't decide what to get Mom and Dad for their upcoming anniversary? Looking for a  lasting remembrance of a loved one? Want a  unique way to celebrate the birth of your child, graduation, wedding, anniversary, or any special recognition? Through our Commemorative Tree and Bench Program you can establish a  living memorial and beautify your park at the same time, as well as offer respite to park visitors to help them enjoy their surroundings.

You may dedicate a bench or tree in RB&W District Community Park in memory or in honor of an individual, group or corporation. Bench and tree sites are pre-determined in accordance with the City of Rock Falls RB&W District Master Plan and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. A small brass plaque will be inscribed with your tribute and then mounted on the cement  pad for benches and a small cement pad with brass plaque in front of trees.

To discuss commemorative giving opportunities, please contact Janell Loos Director of Tourism & Events or to download a printable form and mail with check. Email or call  with any questions.

Opportunities for larger gifts, such as the amphitheater, water feature and bathrooms, boardwalks and other facility upgrades are available. Please contact Janell Loos for more information.
