Celebrate a loved one, a special life event or just your love of your favorite park through Ramsey County Parks & Recreation’s tribute program. Donations to the tribute program will be honored with the installation of a customizable 2x5 inch plaque on a bench or bike repair station.
Donation options and pricing
Existing bench location
10-year term – $3,000
A refurbished bench will be outfitted with a plaque at an existing location that does not currently have a plaque. Parks & Recreation staff will work with you to find the best available location.
New bench location
