Searching for an unusual gift for someone special, a one-of-a-kind way to recognize a friend, or a unique way to memorialize a loved one? Consider adopting a park bench!

The Center City District has benches available for adoption at John F. Collins Park, 1707 Chestnut Street and also at The Rail Park, our city’s newest elevated public park, now under construction between Broad Street and Callowhill. Donors receive a plaque on the selected bench, engraved with a personalized inscription.  

Thousands of visitors spend time in our beautiful Center City parks. Your donation will help endow the maintenance of our benches and landscape.

To adopt a bench, contact Nancy Goldenberg at 215.440.5523 or email ngoldenberg@centercityphila.org
