Create a Lasting Memory

Whether you are interested in honoring someone special or just want to create a living memory by sponsoring part of the park that you love, adopt-a-park is a priceless gift.  Not only will the tree, bench, chair, or flower bed that you adopt continue to bring joy to the gift recipient, but it will also be a gift to the park and all who use it.

The Esplanade Association has worked with the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) to open up the opportunity for any individual, group, or business to Adopt-A-Tree, Adopt-A-Bench, Adopt-A-Chair, or Buy-A-Bulb along the Esplanade.

Give a gift that will bring joy for generations, while supporting The Esplanade Association’s work to restore and enhance the historic Charles River Esplanade.
