Bench Program

​Oakland County Parks and Recreation can provide you with the opportunity to honor an individual or memorialize a loved one with our bench program! The cost of the plaque is $1,000 to use an existing bench or $2,000 for a new bench.

The steps below outline the programs process:

  1. Have a bench or location in mind (a visit with the park supervisor is available)
  2. Determine the wording you would like on the plaque (approx. 24 letters per line, 3 lines of text)
  3. A mockup will be done and sent to you to review and approve
  4. Once approved, we will collect payment and submit the order

For existing benches, it will take about 3-4 weeks to receive the plaque and install it.

For new benches, it can take 2-3 months to build and install.

If interested, please reach out to Kelly Morris with location and plaque wording at morriskr@oakgov.com or 248-858-7726.
