Memorial Bench Program

Comfortable, contemplative benches as a lasting tribute to family and friends who so enjoyed the nature trails, the seasons and the good old-fashioned peace and quiet of our conservation lands are now available from the Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation.

Public resting benches with a memorial plaque are a well-established and publicly-appreciated way to express your esteem and sympathy. We see them in cities and parks all over the world in honour of people who have enjoyed the natural places in which the benches are placed. You and the family have a favourite natural place…well just think about having your own special bench to look forward to!

These six-foot long, sturdy, Canadian-made benches in two styles can be installed permanently in any of the established conservation areas and many parks of your choice in the valley. Each bench features a commemorative plaque with the name of the honoured person and a few words from the family.

Comforting to the family…absolutely. But also, very valuable to a whole range of new people, young and old, who will use the parks and conservation areas every day well into the future. Your family gift quickly becomes a benefit to the entire community as our public spaces are cared for by future generations of users. These benches are a long-lasting legacy indeed.
