Would you like to have your name, organization, business or a loved one’s name on a bench in the city of Linden? Now is the time to act.
The city of Linden Parks & Recreation Commission is presenting its Adopt a Bench program. This program is for individuals, families, businesses or organizations who wish to help contribute to the beauty and relaxation of our city’s parks.
There are two options available to Adopt a Bench:
OPTION 1: Adopt a Bench and do the work yourself.
The first year, the benches must be thoroughly scraped and cleaned or when possible, power washed and stained with two coats of stain. Every subsequent year, the benches need to be stained no later than July 4. The adoptee will purchase the approved stain directly from The Stain Shop in Linden. A plaque with the adoptee’s name will be provided by the City. The adoption period is for 10 years. At any time that the bench is no longer maintained it will be available for re-adoption.
OPTION 2: Adopt a Bench for a one-time fee of $500 and the bench will be cleaned and maintained by the City.
The fee would be used to offset the cost of the stain, labor and a plaque on the bench. The adoption period is for 10 years.
