Bench Program

A meaningful way to improve your parks with a lasting impact is to donate a bench. Donors can choose to honor a friend of family member, celebrate a special occasion, or express gratitude. Benches can also be donated by a large group of individuals making smaller contributions to make up the total cost of the bench together.

There are three models of comfortable, well-designed and durable benches that are available to choose from. The Parks Foundation staff works with you to choose a location for the bench.

If you are interested in learning more about the Bench Program, please fill out the inquiry form below or contact Caitlin Harpster at 724.327.7627.


As of March 2023, we have installed 80 benches throughout your county park system.

This program has raised over $400,000 in park enhancements by providing peaceful and beautiful benches and surrounding landscapes for all to enjoy.
