Through the Memorial Bench Program, you have the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy in honour of a loved one, individual, or group and enhance the meaning of a bench to observers and park users. You can memorialize a loved one or commemorative a significant group, date (birthday, marriage or anniversary) or event (achievement awards).
To date, the most popular item is a six-foot aluminum framed park bench, although other options are available.
The cost for the donation of a six-foot aluminum framed style park bench is $1,200.00, which includes the bench purchase, installation (on a concrete pad), and maintenance for a period of ten years. A commemorative plaque is an additional cost however the City will install the plaque.
All donations are tax deductible and an official receipt will be issued by the year end which the donation was made.
Bench locations are coordinated with the Public Works Department. If you are interested in further information regarding a Memorial Bench Donation here in the City of Trail, please contact us. Together we can establish a lasting legacy for our City.
The City of Trail would like to thank you for considering this heartfelt gift.
