Holiday Gift Ideas: Give the Gift of a Chicago Park
This holiday season, you can give the gift of a Chicago park! Here are some ideas to get started.
Chicago Park District Store: Whether you’re looking for a tote, a t shirt, or a phone case, the Chicago Park District’s new store has something for everyone. You can choose from a variety of styles including the iconic Luna character, the classic park pictogram, Alder Planetarium, and Buckingham Fountain themed items. Or, if you have a specific park in mind, you can customize anything to the park of your choice.
Donate to Chicago parks in honor of a nature lover: Giving in honor of important people in your lives is a great gift idea for those who spend time in Chicago parks. Your gift will support local park advisory councils, park youth programs, and spreading positive, productive park energy throughout Chicago. If you specify who the donation is for and include their contact information, we will send a personalized thank you note to directly to the person you honor. Donate here.
Benches: Make a lasting mark in a Chicago park with a bench dedication. Dedicate a bench in honor of a loved one who has passed, in celebration of a recent achievement, or to commemorate a community leader. The Chicago Parks Foundation works with you every step of the way to ensure your bench is in the park and location of your choice. Learn more.
Green Deed Trees: Plant a tree in the park of your choice to provide lasting recognition of the significant people and occasions in your life. You choose the type of tree and location, and will receive a planting certificate suitable for printing. Learn more.
