Commemorative Bench Donation Program

The City's bench donation program allows residents — and other interested parties — to create a lasting memorial in a Shaker Heights park.

Donated benches are installed in one of four City parks, specifically Horseshoe Lake Park, Southerly Park, Green Lake or Lower Lake. 

Each donated bench includes a four-by-six inch bronze commemorative plaque. Cost of the donation is $2,600.

The City purchases (see sample styles), installs and maintains the commemorative bench.
