About the Program

The City of Bothell Parks Department offers the opportunity to recognize and assist donors' plans to commemorate and honor a loved one. This program allows an individual to dedicate a bench to be placed in one of our parks. To maintain consistency throughout our parks system and manage the installation, the Parks and Recreation Department has selected a standard bench and plaque.


To review the City of Bothell's parks, please visit our online Parks Guide. When you are ready to apply for this program, please list your choices for a park location.

Note: Due to the generosity of donors, the following parks are unavailable to receive additional bench or table donations: Blyth Park, Brackett’s Landing, Cedar Grove, Doug Allen, North Creek Fields, Park at Bothell Landing, & Volunteer Park.

Bench Style & Plaque

The park bench is 6 feet in length, and composed of colored, recycled plastic slats. An embedded plaque will be added to the bench; donors are responsible for providing the content for the plaque at the time of submitting the application.

  • Plaque Size: 4"x6" 
  • Bench Size: 6'
  • Plaques are furnished by the City, with the content proposed by the donor. Spelling and content accuracy are the responsibility of the donor. Plaque content is subject to review and approval by City staff. 

Orders & Payment

To place an order, please complete the online application. Commemorative benches cost $3,000 and includes: bench, plaque, concrete pad, installation and general maintenance for the life of the bench, which is estimated to be about 15 years.   

Checks are currently the only method of payment accepted. Checks are to be made payable to the City of Bothell. Payment must be made in full prior to bench/plaque purchase and installation.
