What better place to plan your next career move, propose marriage, explain to your kids how a caterpillar becomes a butterfly, or read a good book than on a bench in a serene, natural setting? The present wooden, log benches at Oregon Ridge Park are slowly succumbing to the ravages of time and need to be replaced. Sponsoring a new bench through the Oregon Ridge Adopt-A-Bench program is a wonderful way to memorialize a family member or a dear friend, celebrate special occasions or milestones, or just say, “I love you.” By providing a place to sit, rest, reflect and remember you are enhancing Oregon Ridge for the enjoyment of all.

You can adopt a 4 foot cedar bench for $600 or a 6 foot cedar bench for $800. Your bench, with an acknowledging plaque, will then be placed at an agreed upon site in the park. This contribution is tax deductible. If you would like more information about the Adopt-A-Bench program please contact Dr. Ralph Brown at 410-375-4378 or by email at
