Immortalize the one you love...with a memorial at a Maricopa County Park. Anyone familiar with the parks in the Maricopa County Regional Park System knows these are special places and often become important to the lives of the visitors. Occasionally, a visitor wishes to place a memorial within a park.
In an attempt to fulfill this dream, the Maricopa County Parks and Recreation Department offers the Memorial Donation Program.
These park benches provide heavy steel pipe fabrication, welded steel components for a stronger frame and wider curves for a simple, clean appearance. Park benches also come with a plaque that includes three lines of remembrance. Additional lines, and larger plaques, are available at an additional cost. The plaque is ordered once the wording and dates have been approved by the donor.
After it is complete, the plaque is set in the form and the bench is cast around it. Completed benches are picked up, transported to the park, and set in place by the park staff.
Memorial benches are most frequently placed along barrier-free trails to serve as resting points. Another popular location is at vista points within the park. Location availabilities will be discussed during the ordering and will be approved by the park supervisor.
NOTICE: All White Tank Mountain Regional Park memorial bench locations have been filled. The park will not be accepting requests for memorial benches at this location until further notice. Updated on June 4, 2019.
