Memorial Bench and Tree Program

Memorial Bench

MEMORIAL BENCHES 

The Memorial Bench Program offers donors the opportunity to purchase a bench to memorialized loved ones, commemorate a special event, honor an agency or individual and enhance the aesthetics of the County Parks.

You may select the specific park for your bench donation.  Your may also request a specific area with the park, however, the Parks Department  will determine the bench’s exact location.

The benches have a factory warranty of the product defects only, deemed as such solely by the manufacturer. The County Parks staff will make every reasonable effort to maintain benches, but are not responsible for acts of nature, damage or vandalism.  The department may make repairs or replacement of memorial benches, but are not required to do so.

The Parks Department reserves the right to relocate the bench if it is determined it is in the County Parks best interest.


BENCH GUIDELINES

  • Bench length can be 4’, 5’ or 6’.
  • Bench is preferably made using recycled sustainable material.  Polly Products and Carefree Creations are an example of manufactures that provide these type of benches.
  • Benches should compliment the area they are to be placed. 
  • The cost of the bench and engraving is at the donor’s expense; however, both must be pre-approved by the Parks Department.
  • The cost of the pad for the bench is absorbed by the donor; however, the cost of the labor is absorbed by the Parks Department.
