The Bench Donation Program
Help create a special place for rest and relaxation in our Milwaukee County Parks by donating a bench! Our program is the only program in Milwaukee County where you can have a bench installed at your favorite park. Donating a bench is wonderful way to improve our parks while commemorating a special event or honoring a loved one. The park the bench is placed in will determine the style of the bench. All bench purchases include a personalized inscription plaque that will be mounted on the bench’s backrest. We do require a $500.00 deposit in order to start the donation process.
Here’s what’s needed to donate a bench:
1. Read through the program policy.
2. Complete the online form for your personalized inscription plaque. On the form, please make sure you indicate in which Milwaukee County Park you would like to have your bench placed.
3. Submit the $500.00 deposit.
What happens next? The Park People office will contact you to confirm your order details, answer any questions and keep you updated on your bench placement. The Milwaukee County Landscape Department reviews your chosen location and may suggest a more appropriate location based on a number of factors. When completed, The Park People will inform you of the placement of the bench and request the remaining balance of the bench donation if it is still outstanding.
It is recognized that the bench and the cement base for the bench will be placed in a public County Park. In that the location is exposed to the outside elements and to the general public, the purchaser acknowledges that damage to the bench or its base is not under the control of The Park People. The purchaser does not hold The Park People responsible for damage to the bench or cement base.
