Plaques To Be Placed On Sponsored Benches At Tongva Park:

Santa Monica City Hall has launched a new opportunity for fans of Tongva Park to show their support for the park.

Benches located in prime spots throughout Tongva Park are now part of the City’s Give Santa Monica program.

In exchange for a donation of $3,150, donors are able to customize a plaque to be permanently placed on their selected bench.

Karen Ginsberg, Director of Community & Cultural Services, said this was an excellent opportunity to commemorate an anniversary or birthday, honor a friend or family member, or memorialize a loved one.

“We’re thrilled to be able to open up this opportunity to the Santa Monica community,” Ginsberg said. “Tongva Park has already claimed a special place in the hearts of many. The bench program is a new way to make it just that much more personal for friends and loved ones.”

In line with the park’s celebrated, modern design, the plaques have been custom-designed for Tongva Park’s wood benches. Personalized messages will be etched into elegant stainless steel plaques, chosen for its ability to stand the test of time. There are a limited number of benches open for purchase, with locations available on a first come, first serve basis.

The City of Santa Monica worked with world-renowned landscape architects, James Corner Field Operations, to bring the community’s vision for Tongva Park to life.

Since opening in October 2014, Tongva Park has won critical acclaim and been featured in publications including the Los Angeles Times, Sunset Magazine, Landscape Architecture Magazine, and the New York Times.

Tongva Park is located at 1615 Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica. For more information on the park, visit www.smgov.net/tongvapark.

To purchase a bench, contact the City of Santa Monica’s Community & Cultural Services Department at 310-458-8310 or email ccs@smgov.net.
