A memorial bench is the perfect way to honor someone, be it a relative,
a friend or another individual or group who deserves recognition. It provides
a public and lasting commemoration. For those remembering someone who
has passed away it serves as a place of contemplation where friends and
family can go to enjoy memories of the deceased.
A gift that makes a difference
Funds raised through the memorial bench program go directly to the Newburyport
Parks Commission to maintain and improve Newburyport Parks. It's a meaningful
way to make a lasting impression on the community by supporting city parks.
Adopt an existing bench, $1,000
A traditional, commemorative plaque will be placed on an existing bench
in one of Newburyport's parks or public spaces. Your donation will fund
maintenance and improvements of city parks.
Purchase a new bench, $3,000
A new bench with a traditional plaque will be purchased and installed
in your choice of available locations throughout Newburyport. This option
serves Newburyport Parks in two ways: it provides a new bench where one
is needed; and funds maintenance and improvements to city parks.
