Adopt A Bench

How does it work?
You may have a plaque installed on a current bench, or you may purchase a new bench and plaque. We will work with you to determine an appropriate location for a new bench.

Where are current benches located?
There are a number of benches located throughout the town. Most are located in Grace Lord Park or at Pepe Field. If you have a current location in mind, the Recreation Department will do our best to honor requests.

Can I have a dedication service?
Absolutely. Contact the Parks and Recreation Department at 973-263-2110 to arrange a convenient time for a dedication..

How much does it cost?
To purchase a plaque and place on an existing bench, the cost is $300.00. If you would like to adopt half a bench (bench share program), the cost is $150. This includes purchase of the plaque and installation. To purchase a new bench and plaque the cost is $1500.00 including installation. 

What type of plaque can I get?
In order to insure consistency, Boonton Parks and Recreation will order your plaque. Plaques are 8” x 3” Bronze with gold colored raised letters and can accommodate up to 26 spaces per line– 3 lines maximum. 

Who do I contact?
Please contact Boonton Parks and Recreation at 973-263-2110 or via email at with any questions you may have. The order form and policy are available from our website at
