Park Bench

Leave your mark in a Chicago park!

The Chicago Parks Foundation's Bench Dedication Program honors significant loved ones and memories in a way that all park patrons can enjoy. Your contribution supports the Chicago Parks Foundation's work as the 501c3 partner of the Chicago parks, while also improving the park itself and leaving a beautiful, lasting memory. 

The Chicago Parks Foundation will work with you and the Chicago Park District to choose your park location and identify the perfect on-site spot for installation. Some restrictions apply. 

Your bench plaque tells the story. Each donor bench will include a 2”x10” cast bronze plaque which allows you to memorialize a person, place or date.
