Tree Memorial Program
The tree memorial program accepts requests for trees throughout the year to recognize loved ones in conjunction with the local beautification committee, Pride, Inc. New to the Godfrey Parks and Recreation Department is our Baby Tree Program. Consider planting a baby tree in celebration of a new baby and watch it grow as the child grows.
Anyone wishing to purchase a tree is encouraged to do so at the Parks and Recreation Department or through Pride, Inc. Trees will be planted the following spring and recognized at the annual Arbor Day Celebration at Glazebrook Park in the end of April. The Arbor Day Celebration will include a memorial dedication ceremony to honor and memorialize those for whom the trees have been dedicated.
Please contact the Parks and Recreation Department at 466-1483 for more information.
Maps of the dedication trees are posted at Glazebrook Park. They are also available to view online. Please click on the links below to view the tree maps.
The Village of Godfrey is now offering the opportunity to purchase American flags to be displayed on Godfrey Road as an Avenue of Flags throughout the Village intermittently throughout the year. Flags may be purchased in the spirit of patriotism or memory/honor of your loved ones . The price per flag is $75. A dedication ceremony will be held annually at the Family Fun Day celebration at Glazebrook Park in July to recognize donors and those for whom the flags were purchased.
