Tree and Bench Memorials

The City of Marshalltown welcomes the donation of trees and park benches. These generous donations will grace our public spaces for decades while providing a unique opportunity to honor a special person or to mark a notable event. The planting of the tree or placement of the bench will be done by parks staff. The City will assume continued maintenance.
