Rose Bed and Rose Arch Dedications

The Conservancy offers several options in the Rose Garden dedication program. A small plaque with the name of the honoree is placed in the rose bed or at the base of the arch. The plaques are on view on an annual basis and are placed in springtime. One year is designated as June 1 to November of the same year. 

While we attempt to honor requests for rose beds and arches, we cannot always assign specific ones when multi-year dedications are in place. Please contact our office if you have any questions regarding the program at 860-231-9443, ext. 101 or We will be pleased to work with you.

  • One-year Arch or Rose Bed Dedication: $150.00
  • Three-year Arch or Rose Bed Dedication: $400.00
  • Six-year Arch or Rose Bed Dedication: $800.00
  • Perpetual Arch or Rose Bed Dedication: $5,000.00

Bench Dedications

The Elizabeth Park Conservancy started a bench dedication program in 1990 as a way for people to honor family and friends, and for the Park to install much-needed places for visitors to sit and rest. There are over 100 benches in the Park, and our visitors use them daily.

When you dedicate a bench, a personalized plaque is installed with your message for your honoree. If you live in the area, please stop by the Park to see the benches and samples of messages. 

The donation for benches located in the Rose Garden is $5,000, while the donation for those located outside the Rose Garden is $2,500. Bench Dedications are for a period of 10 years. You can review the Bench Dedication Policy and Application form by clicking the link below. Call the office at 860-231-9443, ext. 101 or email if you have any questions.

Tree Dedications

Beginning in fall 2020, the Elizabeth Park Conservancy will offer the public the opportunity to dedicate trees. This is a trial program and the trees available for dedication will be located only in a new grove that the Conservancy will plant beginning in fall 2020, and continuing into spring 2021.

The plantings will be located along the sides of the beautiful new path running from the Fern Street Entrance into the Park and ending at the road across from the Rose Garden.

The donor’s funds will go towards purchasing and caring for the new trees. The 10-year dedications will be available for $2,500. Signage will be placed at the foot of the trees with the donor’s dedication message.

There will be a limited number of trees available for dedication.

Contact Kelly Nolen at or 860-231-9443 ext. 101 if you have any questions.
