Franklin Parks and Recreation offers a unique dedication program to honor and remember friends and relatives. Planting a tree in a city park is a wonderful way to honor a loved one and also provides a gift to the whole community. Trees are planted in public parks so everyone can enjoy the shade, beauty, and enjoyment a living tree provides. The trees will be cared for by Franklin Parks & Recreation, ensuring a long life for the tree you select. Your donation is tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law through a partnership with the Johnson County Community Foundation. Plantings will take place in spring and fall seasons. Along with the planted tree, a leaf inscribed with the name you choose will be placed on a wall mounted “Tree of Life” to be displayed in the Cultural Arts and Recreation Center.
