Harrogate Borough Council operates a donated seat scheme across many of the parks and open spaces throughout the district.

Donating a seat in memory of a loved one is a popular way many family members and friends choose to remember that special person. It may be possible to install a beautiful seat in the favourite park or open space of your loved one, or somewhere you enjoy visiting.

To ensure that the seats in our parks and gardens look the same, we ask that you choose from our selection of three different styles; please note that in some of our parks and open spaces there will only be one style of bench available.

From the 1 April 2017 until 31 March 2018 please see below the price range for each style of seat

  • recycled Serpent seat, Harrogate, Starbeck, Knaresborough and Pateley Bridge - £950-£1100 each
  • recycled Ripon seat - £600-£700 each
  • Kensington seat - £1300-£1500 each
