Metro Vancouver Regional Parks offers a number of gift options

Commemorative and Memorial Gifts

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.

Park Bench

Option A: 15 years (pictured here)
Price: $4,500 (pre-paid) including taxes

Option B: backless with no armrests
Price: $2,280 (pre-paid) including taxes

Please note: Metro Vancouver has recently updated their standards and all new benches 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.

Concrete Picnic Table

15 years
Price: $4,040 (pre-paid) including taxes
