Bench Memorials

The 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. At this time, we are only offering metal benches that has a small dedication plaque with the name of the individual or organization being honored.

Metal benches have a durable epoxy-based paint and will last for an expected 25 years. Metal benches are placed outside at a dedicated location within the Garfield Park Conservatory’s 10 acres of outdoor gardens. The donation amount is $5,000 and includes a custom dedication plaque. Your donation is fully tax deductible and supports our nature education programs, exhibits and resources.
