Apply for a memorial park bench

Our parks are enjoyed by thousands of people each year and mean something special to all who love them.

A memorial bench is a thoughtful way to remember a loved one. It can stand as a reminder of their life for many years to come.

It's also a place for family and friends to reflect on memories and shared moments.

You can buy a new bench and provide a plaque to be placed on the bench in one of our parks. Plaques can also be attached to existing benches. You will need to purchase and provide your own plaque.

The council will maintain the bench for 10 years.
