Miami-Dade Parks Bench Dedication Program

Benches are a great way to celebrate a special occasion or a loved one. Your donation also helps support parks Countywide.

Find a bench dedication option that's perfect for your occasion.

Community Park Bench Dedication

Community parks are the heart of a neighborhood and the place where lifelong memories are made. Dedicate a bench at one of the selected Community Park sites, visit the park often and relive your fondest memories. Once you have selected your favorite Community Park (see list to the right), you can purchase a new bench with a personalized plaque or add a personalized plaque to an existing bench.

Heritage Park Bench Dedication

With seven specially designated Heritage Parks to choose from, your dedicated bench will be admired by the thousands of residents and visitors who explore and enjoy these parks every day. Once you have selected a Heritage Park, you can purchase a new bench with personalized plaque or add a personalized plaque to an existing bench.

Speciality Park Bench Dedication

This is for the "extra" special person or milestone you want to commemorate. Choose from Amelia Earhart Park or The Women's Park. Once you have made your selection, you can purchase a new bench with personalized plaque or add a personalized plaque to an existing bench.
