Park Memorial Program

Community members or interest groups are encouraged to participate in one of the City of Redmond’s Memorial Programs as a way to communicate a significant birthday, anniversary, special event, or the passing of a loved one. Consider donating a bench or tree to commemorate a significant event.

Memorial Items


Your donation of a park bench helps to beautify the park, and provide a useful amenity that thousands of park users can enjoy and appreciate. The gift of a park bench is a unique way to remember a loved one or honor an individual. You have the option to purchase a bench to be placed at a new site or purchase a bench to replace an existing bench that may be reaching the end of its usefulness.
