Rockport launches park bench program

Nov 25, 2019

Rockport — The Rockport Park and Beautification Committee has announced an opportunity for members of the public to honor the life of loved ones or to recognize special people or events, through a personally designated park bench program. While many similar programs are limited to memorials of those who have passed, Rockport’s bench program offers recognition or thanksgiving for special events, anniversaries or people who are deserving of this public honor. All applications for this program are subject to an approval process, and while an applicant may desire a particular location, the Committee reserves the right to determine the exact location depending upon site availability.

The Committee has selected the Jackson Park Settee for the bench, a model that boasts heavy park construction, designed to withstand the test of time in public spaces. The benches can be rented for $5000 for a period of 10 consecutive years. Recognition plaques will consist of three lines – each with a maximum of 28 characters, with the middle line identifying who or what is being honored, and the last line identifying the sponsor or donor.

Those interested in the bench program can obtain an application at the Rockport Town Hall at 101 Main St.
