Memorial Bench Program

Memorial benches have become an increasingly popular way to remember and pay tribute to loved ones. Because of this popularity, the Parks Division has developed a number of bench styles to choose from, as well a list of places in our parks where benches can be placed. The criteria for bench styles are based on park design, function, aesthetics, and maintenance. The criteria for the site list are based on bench needs in each park, as well as a determination of the maximum number of benches appropriate for each park.

By using these tools to help govern memorial benches, we hope to keep the Fort Collins Park system beautiful and flourishing for all to enjoy.

PLEASE NOTE: The Memorial Bench Program is currently being reviewed in order to provide an improved process. Memorial Bench requests that have been submitted and are in process will be completed; however, Parks will NOT be accepting any new memorial bench requests. Thank you for your patience and understanding while the Memorial Bench Programs is being restructured.
