Legacy in the Park

Legacy in the Park is an amazing program that allows individuals, families, or businesses to assist the City of Palestine Parks & Recreation Department by maintaining, replacing, or adding new amenities through community donations.

By sponsoring a permanent fixture in one of the City of Palestine's parks or cemeteries, you have the opportunity to honor a special person or event with a personalized permanent plaque placed on or close to your selected donated item.
