Dedicate a Bench

Bench dedications are a great way to honor, memorialize, or pay tribute to family, friends, an anniversary, a special moment, or group/organization.

FLAGSTAFF HILL (SCHENLEY PARK)

Flagstaff Hill is not only an iconic Pittsburgh destination that people of all ages enjoy year-round, but it's also the site of the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy's most recent capital improvement project. This popular landmark, directly opposite Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, attracts thousands of visitors annually who enjoy its panoramic views of the Oakland neighborhood and city skyline. 

The first step of the project is restoring the historic hand-hewn stone entry steps, retaining walls, and the overlooking terrace. Following the restoration of the historic masonry walls and stairs, the project will address pedestrian barriers by reconstructing the dilapidated main path connecting the east and west entrances, where the Conservancy will soon create new gardens. 

The project also includes the installation of new park benches along the connecting pathways, so visitors can enjoy a moment of relaxation as they enjoy the stunning views from Flagstaff Hill.

HIGHLAND PARK ENTRY GARDEN

The Highland Park Entry Garden was restored in 2005 by the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy. Together with the Highland Park community, the Parks Conservancy sought to return this jewel of landscape design to the people of Pittsburgh. Restoration work began in 2003 and was completed in 2005, returning the space to the neighborhood treasure it was meant to be. The gardens have since been accented with four 4-foot-tall metal urns. The urns recall a feature of the entry garden that is visible in historic photos and postcards and feature seasonal plantings. 

The garden contains a glorious mix of herbaceous perennials and spring bulbs and an array of benches that surround the stunning water feature.
