Give a Commemorative Bench

Adopt a bench in honor of a loved one, to commemorate a special event, or to give a unique gift. Adopting a bench offers the opportunity to have a plaque with your inscription placed on an existing bench in Fort Tryon Park. We invite you to join those who have adopted a bench to celebrate weddings, recognize birthdays, remember loved ones, and mark other special occasions and milestones. A bench dedication endows a bench for the long term and ensures that it receives repairs, replacement plaques and ongoing upkeep.

Bench sponsorship is $2,500. To discuss a bench dedication, contact Executive Director Jennifer Hoppa at (212) 795-1388 ext 301 or

We rely on contributions to preserve and enhance the park for future generations. All contributions help sustain the park as a neighborhood natural treasure for years to come.

Your contribution is tax deductible within the limits prescribed by law. Matching gifts are accepted.
