Virginia Beach Parks & Recreation Foundation is offering local businesses, organizations and individual citizens the opportunity to purchase a park bench or tree for a designated park facility. With over 200 parks in our city, there are plenty of communal sites to place your personal mark. But most importantly, through your generous purchase of a park bench or memorial tree, we gain community support for parkland preservation and beautification.
Businesses and organizations that share Virginia Beach Parks & Recreation’s values can gain positive exposure by purchasing a park bench or purchasing a tree that will help sustain our urban forest. The plaque can bear your business/organization name, address and phone number. Those that sit on your park bench or pass by your donated tree will know you are dedicated to community improvement and will appreciate the shade
or resting spot.
Individual citizens can also pay tribute to the memory or honor of loved one through the purchase of a park bench or tree. The honorary plaque can express your commemoration, and it will be shared with the rest of the community for years to come.
