Imagine… Your Own Park Bench

A place to pause, rest, and reflect on the beauty of Marshall Square Park. A lasting gift to the public, to your family, and to yourself.

Crowds of citizens filled Marshall Square and the benches were
occupied all day long. The square now is a beautiful place,
the flowers and plants showing to good advantage.

Marshall Square Park Bench — $5,000

The few old concrete and wood benches remaining in Marshall Square Park have deteriorated and need replacing, creating a unique opportunity to sponsor a Marshall Square Park Bench.

From Keystone Ridge Designs, the new dark bronze benches have Victorian charm befitting our park’s setting and age. The welded cast aluminum legs with steel slats are commercial-grade construction to last many years.

Sponsors may compose an inscription for a 10” x 5” bronze plaque that secures to their bench.
