In our business, we typically refer to benches, trash cans, and bike racks as “amenities”, but honestly, no park or playground is complete without the proper bench. Seating for parents to watch their children at play, expectant mothers to take it easy, and people of all ages to relax in the shade. Park benches and picnic tables tie communal parks together at their most basic level. The right seating, the right setting, bring people in proximity to each other, bind up communities, and stoke conversations and relationships. The park bench really is the essence of the community park. But how do you choose your bench?
You know your park better than anyone. Where are the best trees? Where do people naturally congregate? What’s the best line of site to the playground equipment? When you’ve thought through all the perspectives of your park-goers, you can decide on a number of different options.
Park Bench Material
Depending on your design preferences, the exposure to the sun, and the color options you’d like for your park bench, you have many choices from our collection. For premium designs of high end metal park benches, be sure to check out the premium collections. To take part in sustainability efforts, look at these nice recycled materials. Metal benches come in many powder-coated color options.
Park Bench Dimensions
Standard park benches come in 4, 6 and 8 foot options, but we also carry 10 and 15 foot lengths in some options -- all of these options can be filtered on the left sidebar of this page. A particular favorite for preschoolers and toddlers, are the benches built just their size. Of course, a big decision is whether or not you want a back for your bench.
Other Features and Options
Among our other great features, you can find benches with their own shade, have built-in planters, swing from frames, and square wrap around benches. If you don’t have great shade for your seating, consider checking out our shade structures.
