Midlothian’s city parks provide hundreds of acres of green space and recreational facilities for the enjoyment of residents and visitors of all ages.

Benches enhance the comfort of park visitors and add to the park's beauty.

By donating to the Bench Dedication Program, donors create a lasting legacy that will be enjoyed by generations to come, while at the same time publicly pay tribute to a person, event, or organization of the donor’s choice. Park benches are a unique way to honor or remember a loved one, mark an occasion, or recognize an organization.

A nameplate engraved with the wording of the donor's choice (up to 50 characters, including spaces) will be securely and permanently affixed to the bench.
