City Legacy Bench Donation Interest Form

  1. Leave your mark in a Snoqualmie park

    The City of Snoqualmie’s Legacy Bench Donation Program is a wonderful way to give. Donating a Legacy Bench provides a lasting and memorable way to acknowledge a friend, family member, or loved one. Your gift will be enjoyed by many in our community and your contribution is a caring way to enhance the City’s park and trail system.

  2. Let’s Get Started

    To request a Legacy Bench, please complete and submit the Donation Interest Form, below. All requests are accepted on a first come, first serve basis.

Removal of the bench is at the sole discretion of the City.
