Bench Plaque Program

Commemorate a special memory or pay tribute to a loved one with the Asbury Park Bench Plaque Program.

Plaque will be installed on public benches on The Asbury Park Boardwalk. Up to (3) plaques are available on each bench and are available in limited supply on a first-come-first-serve basis. In the event a plaque is damaged or stolen APCC will replace it one time at our expense. Additional loss or damage to the plaque will be the responsibility of the donor. The donor will be contacted as soon as it comes to the attention of the APCC.

The APCC in cooperation with The City of Asbury Park will purchase, install, service and maintain the plaques for a period of 10 years. At the end of that time, the plaque may be removed and will be sent to the donor with an option to purchase a new plaque for an additional period at the prevailing rate.

Thank you for your support. Funds raised by the Bench Plaque Program are reinvested in Asbury Park and the travel, tourism and music industries that help make Asbury Park a great city to live work and play in.

Commemorative Plaques are $650 each and measure 2.5 inches tall by 8 inches wide. Payment will be collected after purchaser’s draft approval, but before plaque is ordered. Payment may be made in person, by mail, by secure e-payment link, or over the phone.

Plaque placement is based on bench availability. We will try to accommodate requests if possible.

Please be mindful that benches may be moved by the city on occasion, (i.e. for routine or emergency boardwalk maintenance, extreme weather events, etc.). Benches are not guaranteed to be replaced in their exact original location when returned.

You don't have to travel far to get away! 50+ miles of ocean & bay beaches, parks, shopping, history, restaurants, nightlife and so much more!
