One aspect that has been added to the enhancement of our parks, has been the commemorative bench program. Individuals, families, businesses, and/or any organizations may elect to sponsor a bench in the park of their choice. These hand-worked/cast steel benches are six feet long and seat three people comfortably. They are extremely durable for all seasons and have a dark green finish to them. Each bench is affixed with a plaques denoting the sponsor and the date of its installation. To date, the East Rochester residents have graciously donated fourteen benches to our parks.

These benches are both great-looking and functional and reflect the Town/Village pride in our parks. As of March 2021, the cost of sponsoring a bench is $1,450.

This includes the following:

  • Six-foot, hand-worked/cast steel bench with urethane/powder coat finish
  • Delivery from out-of-state
  • Assembly by Parks Committee
  • Commemorative Plaque
  • Installation in park of sponsor's choice

Should you or your business be interested in sponsoring a bench, you can contact Mark McDermott, Chairperson, East Rochester Parks Committee, (585) 586-7756. Please feel free to contact Mark directly with any questions or concerns you may have.
