A tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor a person’s life and accomplishments, memorialize a loved one or commemorate a special occasion. Add beauty to the Olmsted Parks by making a tribute gift with a simple donation, a newly planted tree or a lovely wood bench.

Tribute Donation

Celebrate an occasion or memorialize a life by protecting Louisville’s Olmsted-designed parks and parkways with a donation to the Conservancy. Tribute donation recipients will be notified that you have made a donation in their honor.

Tree or Shrub Tribute

Sponsor a tree or shrub and make a living contribution, enhancing the natural vitality of the Olmsted Parks. Your donation includes planting (December through March) and maintenance guaranteed for two years. You will receive a keepsake and certificate.

Bench Tribute

World’s Fair-style benches are six feet in length and feature a cast bronze plaque that can be personalized with the message of your choice. The Conservancy will work with you to select a bench location in one of the Olmsted Parks.

We look forward to partnering with you to make your tribute gift special. For questions about options and personalization, please contact Kathy Ezzell at or 502-456-3266.

Totaling 1200 acres, the parks were designed to offer a complete range of park experiences as defined by Olmsted, from civic gatherings and social interactions to organized athletics and personal recreation.
