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 CPF's work while also improving the park itself and leaving a lasting memory.
CPF will work with you and the Chicago Park District to choose your park location, identify the perfect on-site spot for installation, and craft a special inscribed bronze plaque.
$5,500 Most Neighborhood Parks

*Bench pricing varies dependent upon location and accessibility and may change.
Specific bench style varies by park. CPF will inform you of the style options available. All benches are installed on a concrete slab and include an inscribed bronze plaque (2"x10").
HOW INSTALLATION WORKS
After filling out the initial online form, you will be contacted about a site visit, payment, and next steps. Weather permitting, benches should be installed within 2-3 months.
