Adopting a Bench is a great way to support Central Park. Established in 1986, the Adopt-a-Bench program has led to the adoption of over 4,100 of the Park's 9,000 benches.
The benches can be adopted with a donation of $10,000. In recognition of contributions to the fund, Central Park Conservancy installs a personalized plaque on a park bench of the donor's choosing.
You can download an Adopt-a-Bench application form from the Central Park Conservancy website.
