Due to resource constraints and a high volume of requests, we will not be accepting new bench donations until Spring 2023. Please check back then for updates on making a bench donation.
Commemorate a loved one or a special occasion with a personalized bench in Prospect Park. Install a new bench in Prospect Park in a favorite location, or adopt an existing bench you already know and love from among the hundreds in and around the park. With either option, the Alliance will install a plaque with the personal inscription of your choice. Read through the options below, and then contact us to begin the Commemorative Bench process.
Install a New Bench: $8,500
Work with Alliance staff to choose a location to install a new bench. The process of installing a new bench and the personalized plaque is approximately 8-10 weeks from start to finish.
Adopt an Existing Bench: $3,500
Select any bench in the park without an existing plaque and add your own personal dedication. The process of adding a personalized plaque to an existing bench in the park is approximately 5-6 weeks to allow for plaque customization and repainting of the bench. Bench Adoption timelines can vary based on season, as new paint jobs cannot be completed in temperatures below freezing.
View our Available Bench Database to see locations of benches available for adoption in Prospect Park.
*There may be available benches to adopt in the park that are not accounted for in the database. We recommend visiting the park when considering your bench selection.
Commemorative Tree + Bench Combo
We also offer discounts for adopting or installing a bench together with planting a tree in the park. Combinations start at $3,750 and discounts range from $250 – $1,500. You can view the different combinations available and their discount on the Commemorative Tree + Bench Combo Chart
