Jean Sweeney Open Space Park Fund
Sponsor A Park Bench
The Recreation & Parks Department is finalizing the order to be placed for the memorial benches. Enough orders were received to cover all the benches planned for Phase I of the park construction.
Benches within the Jean Sweeney Park are now available for sponsorship. Your sponsored bench can include memorial or acknowledgment plaques.
Alameda Recreation & Parks has asked the Jean Sweeney Open Space Park Fund to manage the bench project. We will collect the funds and maintain records for ARPD. When enough funds have been collected, ARPD will purchase the park benches in groups of 10 to 20 to allow saving on shipping charges.
Memorial or dedication plaques must be purchased and engraved by the individuals sponsoring a bench. The plaque should be metal and sized 1-7/8” x 9-7/8”. Examples of the plaques can be seen here.
Questions about sponsoring a bench can be sent to us by using the "Contact Us" link on the right side of this page.
Payments can be made by check (preferred) or by PalPal. See the application form
Partial donations will also be accepted and will be pooled with other partial donations to sponsor a bench. Partial benches will not have a plaque.
