Bench Memorials

E_GRO15_Mom-and-daughter-on-bench-in-AroidThe Garfield Park Conservatory Alliance is pleased to offer a very special opportunity for families, friends and colleagues to honor, celebrate and remember a loved one or otherwise mark a memorable milestone with a special dedication here at the Garfield Park Conservatory.

This initiative helps provide high quality and attractive seating at the Conservatory, while honoring an individual or organization. We offer both teak and metal benches and each will carry a small dedication plaque with the name of the individual or organization being honored. Your memorial will continue through the lifetime of the particular bench.

  • Teak benches are $2,500 and include a dedication plaque. Teak benches have a long life expectancy, but are made of natural materials and will over time require replacement.
  • Metal benches have a durable epoxy-based paint and will last for an expected 25 years. Metal benches are placed outside on the Garfield Park Conservatory grounds and are priced at $5,000 including the dedication plaque.
