Adopt-A-Bench or Table

The Adopt-A-Bench/Table Program provides civic-minded individuals the opportunity to purchase a bench or table that not only provides rest and relaxation for park visitors, but also allows for the recognition of a group or individual in a unique and lasting manner.

The City of Mt. Pleasant launched the Adopt-a-Bench or Table program in February 2012 to improve visitor experiences within the City of Mt. Pleasant parks. Each tax-deductible donation will have an individualized engraved plaque.


How to adopt a bench or table

  1. Complete the application and send to MPPR.
  2. You will be contacted via phone or email to confirm receipt of your request. The Parks and Recreation Commission must confirm all qualified Adopt-a-Bench/Table requests by resolution, allowing for public input and comment.
  3. Once confirmed, patrons will be asked to enter into a maintenance and life-cycle agreement with the City of Mt. Pleasant, and prior to install, an agreed upon location will be selected for the bench or table.
A donated bench/table has a life cycle of 15 years. The price includes the purchase of the bench/table plus shipping, the installation of the bench/table and plaque and 15 years of maintenance. Benches/tables are designed and installed to reflect the character of the parks and blend with existing structures.
