If you are interested in purchasing a commemorative bench, once you contact the City of Markham, Operations Parks, Forestry and Horticulture staff will work with you to determine a suitable park or open space location for the bench.
Operations Parks, Forestry and Horticulture staff will attempt to accommodate the preferred park and installation location for the bench, however some park locations may have reached full capacity and a new location will need to be selected.
Once a park and location is approved, the applicant must complete and submit an application form and payment for the bench.
A bench and plaque will be ordered and will be installed at the agreed upon park location within two to six months of the application submission. This is dependent on any unforeseen circumstances such as site conditions due to weather, bench supply from the manufacturer, or construction work preventing site access in the park, which may impact the installation date.
