Park Benches Removed or Scheduled for Removal

Park Bench Letter

September 1, 2022

We acknowledge that the disposal of memorial benches from Glenwood Lake Park was insensitive to the family and friends who purchased memorial benches in honor of their loved ones. The Park Superintendent and the Park Department staff has sorted out the park benches that have been removed and made a list of names as well as a list of benches that are scheduled to be removed. Both lists will be put on our website, shared to Facebook & placed in the paper. Family and loved ones will be able to pick up the benches that have been removed, or just the memorial boards. They will be given the opportunity to purchase a replacement bench, if they so choose.

While we cannot undo what was done, we want to express our apologies to the families and friends who have been hurt due to the removal of their loved one’s benches without notice. Going forward a bench removal policy will be put in place, ensuring that this does not occur again.

Requests for picking up benches will be honored as first come, first serve basis. Please call Ron Mattox, Park Superintendent for pick-up of benches.

Best Regards,

Amber Farnan
