Commemorative and memorial gifts enhance personal connections with a regional park or special place within a park. They provide a gathering place for friends and family and opportunities for rest or quiet reflection. Metro Vancouver Regional Parks offers a number of gift options, including park benches and picnic tables.
OPTION A – 15 YEARS
PRICE: $4,500 (pre-paid) including taxes
OPTION B – BACKLESS PARK BENCH WITH NO ARMRESTS
PRICE: $2,280 (pre-paid) including taxes
Please note: Metro Vancouver has recently updated their standards and all new benches (after 2018) will be untreated red cedar. This is a more environmentally friendly option. Red cedar has natural qualities that provide the longevity required for a bench, however, over time the bench will weather and will not look like it did when first installed. If you have any questions or concerns about this, please contact us.
PRICE: $4,040 (pre-paid) including taxes
