Donations and Memorials
Knox County Parks and Recreation provides opportunities for individuals or groups to enhance our community parks in memory or honor of a relative, friend or organization, or to celebrate a special event. Your contribution may cover the cost of a memorial and its installation or, possibly, another amenity or resource to improve Knox County’s distinctive green spaces.
Contributions for park benches or other items on our “wish list” will be accepted at any time and items will be placed as staff resources and weather permit. Our staff will work with you to choose the best location for your bench to add to the park of your choice.
Some benches and amenities offer an option for a commemorative plaque which we will help you coordinate.
Donation prices cover the cost of the item, installation, and maintenance. Please contact 865-215-6600 to find out more about this program.
