Bench Dedication Program

The Holmdel Township Bench Dedication Program is a great way to honor a group or someone special, and to contribute to the enhancement of our parks for years to come! Your contribution will provide park visitors a place to relax and enjoy all that Holmdel Township Parks have to offer.

Cost: The price is $3,000 which includes the cost of the bench, labor & materials for installation, and the commemorative brass plaque.

Bench: A 6-foot Teak Bench similar to the one pictured to the right.

Dedication: The dedication plaque can include a simple message about the group/person being honored. All bench locations and dedication plaque inscriptions are subject to review and approval by Holmdel Township. It is the intent of the Township to honor dedications as a personal expression while at the same time, providing stewardship and oversight for public land in order to keep those spaces welcoming, safe and accessible for everyone.

All dedications become property of the Township of Holmdel. Please be advised, Holmdel Township is not responsible for the replacement of benches in the event of loss due to vandalism or acts of God including and not limited to coastal storms, hurricanes, floods, etc.

There can only be one plaque per bench.

Placement: Many of our Township parks have space for additional benches, however applications are received on a first come, first served basis. Parks with the most spaces are Bayonet Farm Park and Cross Farm Park. If you have a location in mind, a representative from the Township will meet with you on site to discuss location and alternatives if needed.

Installation: The order time for new benches is approximately six weeks from receipt of payment. Upon receipt of the bench the Department of Public Works Division may require a minimum of two weeks to arrange installation. Notwithstanding, depending on the time of year, as well as the conditions of the desired location, installation may not occur for several months.

Thank you for your interest in our program.  Your participation will enhance our recreational areas and afford the public the opportunity to sit and enjoy the beauty of Holmdel.
