Westchester Park District
Living Tree Memorial
Residents have the opportunity to have a tree planted in a park of their choice to be named after a loved one. The final location will be done by mutual agreement between the Park District and the party donating the tree. The Park District will acquire, plant and guarantee the tree for its normal life expectancy. Bronze plaques are available for purchase through the Park District. Tree costs are $ 275.00. Plaques are additional.
The Westchester Park District provides two areas for picnicking. Permits are required for groups of 20 or more people and can be obtained through the administrative offices at 10201 Bond Street. The picnic season begins in mid May and ends in mid September. Gladstone and Mayfair Parks provide good facilities for group picnics. For more information or to obtain a permit application contact the Westchester Park District at 708.865.8200.
Picnic kits containing specialized sports and recreation equipment are available for rental during the picnic and block party season. These kits contain a horseshoe set, frisbee, softball bat, ball, and bases, volleyball set, soccer ball, football, badminton set and potato sacks.
