Memorials & Commemorative Programs

The Memorial and Commemorative Program enables individuals, families or groups to remember loved ones by the installation of Memorial and Commemorative Benches or small plaques along the Recreational Waterway shores and some City Parks (Chippawa Park and Stop 19 Park).
Individuals, families or groups can choose an already existing bench location and memorialize the bench with a plaque or choose a new bench installation. Many memorial plaques and benches have already been installed.

Cost:

  • Bench at Merritt Island - approx. $500.00 plus HST
    (price includes - installation of the concrete pad and the bench which is metal framed with vinyl lumber)
  • Bench at City Parks - approx. $1500 plus HST
    (price includes - the small plaque that is built in to this bench; installation of the concrete pad and the bench which is metal framed, all components are protected with E-Coat Rust Proofing - giving the bench a longer lifespan.)
  • Plaque for Bench (at Merritt Island) - approx. $30.00
    (It can be purchased at Harpwoods Trophy on King Street)
  • Small memorial Plaque - approx. $35.00
    (They are available at Harpwoods Trophy on King Street. The City does not charge to install them.)
