Dedicate a bench at the Rose Garden today!
The Friends of the Walnut Hill Park Rose Garden has 10 remaining granite benches available for permanent dedication, enabling residents and park users to support the Walnut Hill Rose Garden through a tax-deductible contribution of $2,000. Contributions may be acknowledged by an engraving with a maximum of two lines of text and 85 total characters permitted. The engraving is symbolic of the donation and does not entitle the donor to ownership of the particular bench. Due to the unpredictability of weather and staffing demands, we cannot guarantee a specific installation date. Donors may request a specific bench location, but the Friends will make the final determination based on the bench availability, which is first come first served.
