Bench Commemoration

Honor a loved one with a plaque on a bench in one of San Francisco’s incredible parks.

Whether you select a bench location for its sweeping city vistas or reflective solitude, your plaque will give you a place to go, a place to remember, and years of recognition of the significant people or occasions in your life. The program operates within the SF Recreation and Park Department network of existing benches in parks throughout San Francisco.

“This was once your spot;

it then became ours,

do you see what we see?

Happiness, Hope & Humanity.

Program Details

Plaques will be installed in parks run by RPD throughout San Francisco with a donation of $6,000 with the exception of the Golden Gate Park Music Concourse where plaques will be installed with a donation of $10,000.

Commemorative plaques will be installed for a period of 10 years, at which point donors will have the first right of refusal to renew their contract with a new donation.

You are encouraged to identify two to three available benches in advance to speed up the process.
