Memorial Bench Program

The Parks and Open Space divisions are proud to offer a Memorial Bench Program which is available for those who would like the opportunity to recognize a deceased loved one.

  • People may participate in the program by making a donation of $1,500 to cover the cost of the bench, bronze plaque, and installation by City staff.
  • Benches are cedar colored, six-feet wide, and are a high quality, durable DuMor recycled plastic product. At the donor’s request, the 2"x10" zinc plaques can be personalized with a message of 50 characters or less.
  • Parks and Open Space staff will pre-determine appropriate locations for memorial benches along trails or in parks.
  • Benches will be ordered upon verification of payment and will be installed by City staff as weather and time permits.
  • Zinc plaques are 2"x10". Their placement on benches will be determined on an individual basis. All wording submitted for plaques is subject to the approval of Parks and Open Space staff.
