The City’s Commemorative Program enables residents and visitors to permanently pay tribute to a significant person or occasion within public lands with the approval of Parks Planning and Development staff by three methods:
People may donate in memory of a loved one, to celebrate a marriage or birth, to honour a retiree, as a gift for a graduate student or birthday, or anniversary or any other special occasion.
Residents may donate a Heritage Style Bench with an inscribed bronze plaque to be placed within a park in Barrie in consultation with staff.
The City is not accepting applications for the Commemorative Plaque and Tree in Sunnidale Park at this time as the program is currently under review.
Residents and visitors may purchase an inscribed plaque to be placed on one of two Doorway Sculptures at the Tranquility Garden in the Arboretum with a commemorative tree to be placed within Sunnidale Park at a location to be determined by Parks and Forestry Operations staff. Donors can request a preferred location and staff will do their best to accommodate but the final location will be based on the species selected and available planting space.
Residents may purchase a native tree to be planted in a neighbourhood park, provided Parks & Forestry approves of the minimum size, species and specific location. No plaque is permitted, due to concerns relating to vandalism, mowing maintenance and durability.
