Every cove and bench is made specifically for each donor with an individualized recognition plaque built into each bench. We have identified numerous spaces throughout the Zoo for donor recognition benches and are so pleased you would consider a bench or garden cove.

Bench - $2,500

Rest your feet and donate a seat. Commemorative benches offer rest and relaxation for up to a million visitors a year. Spaces are limited, so reserve yours today.

Garden Cove - $7,500

The garden cove offers a secluded resting spot for you and your family. It includes a cast iron bench with an individualized recognition plaque, a shade structure which offers ample shade for the cove, and lush plants surrounding your cove.

Create a relaxing spot for your family to enjoy while at the Zoo!
