Commemorative Benches

Dedicate a bench!

We want to help you create a special place in our parks!

Placing a bench in your favorite is a wonderful way to help your parks and

  • teach children about stewardship
  • commemorate a special event
  • honor an accomplishment
  • create a meaningful memorial for a loved one

All bench purchases include a personalized inscription plaque mounted on the backrest. Please contact us to designate the park location of your choice.
