The Parks Division of the Community Services Department maintains 15 parks, 2 sports complexes and various other green spaces and trail heads totaling over 260 acres. As the Parks system grows, there is a need for more trees and benches. You can enhance the city parks by donating to the Pella Parks Memorial Program (PDF). Please see the list provided for memorials that can be purchased for many occasions: in memory of someone who has passed away, in honor of a dedicated service member, to celebrate a birthday, graduation, retirement or other occasion.
Park Bench donation is $1035 for a bench in Central Park or Caldwell Park, or $1350 for a bench in Sunken Gardens. This fee includes the bench, memorial plaque and concrete platform.
Picnic Table donation is $1265, which includes an 8 feet steel picnic table or ADA Picnic Table and memorial plaque.
Recycle Bin is $800, which includes a covered recycle bin and memorial plaque.
Tree donation is $500, which will purchase a 1 to 2 inch diameter tree and memorial plaque.
