Benches include a plaque with wording of your choice (subject to approval). The cost to sponsor a bench in a park is $2,500. Sponsorship of benches located on the Idema Explorers Trail are $3,500.
The bench and plaque last as long as the normal life expectancy of the equipment. Please note that some of our parks may not have benches available. The process takes a minimum of 3-6 months to complete from initial inquiry to installation. Once you complete the form someone will contact you to verify the location of the bench and plaque wording.
There are a limited number of tables also available. Complete the commemorative bench form and include in the comment field that you are interested in a table. There are currently no benches available with a Lake Michigan view.
Your gift today will allow our beautiful park system to remain a place of refuge and recreation for everyone in your local community.
