Participating in the Bench Donation Program is a great way to support the Pierce Township Parks while memorializing or honoring a loved one. A Bench can be used to mark important occasions including graduations, weddings, anniversaries, births, and the passing of a friend or family member.
This will allow the Township to purchase a bench, engraved plaque, and install it, typically located along hike/bike trails or a playground. With approval of the Parks Committee, you will be able to select the bench location and placement.
The plaque is 2″ x 10″ and engraved with your desired inscription, a maximum of two lines of up to 42 characters per line, and attached to the bench. The Township reserves the right to reject any text that may be offensive or not appropriate for a public park. The Township will provide care and maintenance of the bench and plaque. Damaged or vandalized benches will be repaired and/or replaced by the Township. Benches may need to be moved during park renovations or construction. Because of frequent use, park benches are not to be decorated and plant materials are not permitted to be planted around or near benches.
Similar to the Bench Donation Program, the goal of the Tree Donation Program is to honor the memory of a loved one, an important event, or even an accomplishment. Through this program you can help with the beautification and enhancement of the parks through your donation.
