Memorial Trees

The Town of High River offers a memorial tree program as a way to celebrate a milestone or special moment by creating a lasting legacy in one of our parks. Honour a loved one or celebrate graduations, anniversaries, births or significant moments in your personal or professional life that can be part of the community for generations.

A variety of evergreen, deciduous and fruiting (edible) trees can be purchased each year. Residents can provide their preference for which park the tree is planted in either George Lane Memorial Park or Riverside Park in the northwest.

Memorial Trees cost $500 per tree and includes planting, plaque and maintenance.

Memorial Benches

Honour a loved one who has passed or thank someone who has made an impact with a memorial bench from High River. Choose a location where your bench can be enjoyed by the
community along the Town’s Happy Trails or in one of the various parks and greenspaces.

The $1,200 purchase price includes the six foot bench and plaque.

Memorial bench applications received by Jan 1 of each year will be considered for spring/summer installation. Actual installation date will be determined by Parks Department schedule when seasonably possible.


Memorial Trees and benches can be purchased at the Bob Snodgrass Recreation Complex
