Allerton’s Memorial & Dedicatory Gift Program offers individuals the opportunity to recognize or remember a loved one, celebrate life’s achievements and milestones, or thank a special friend.
Peony » $200
The peony garden, restored in 2005, showcases 68 varieties of peony blooms, from the softest pink to the deepest red. Your donation will ensure the long-term maintenance of this loved garden. Small stands line the sidewalk at the front of each row of peonies. The stands, updated before the bloom each spring, display your personal message (65 characters or less) commemorating your donation. Find a list of available varieties here.
Bench » $5,000
A concrete bench honoring a loved one offers a quiet resting place to enjoy the beauty of Allerton. A 10″ x 2″ plaque inscribed with the wording of your choice will be affixed, and your bench is guaranteed for a minimum of twenty years. Due to existing benches or long-range plans, some sites are not appropriate for placement. Allerton staff can recommend locations that are available for dedication.
