Friends of Raven Rock State Park connects the generosity of people and businesses to the continuing needs of the park and community, and benches are an important component to Raven Rock State Park. They allow park users to rest or just sit and enjoy the park in comfort. New park benches are made of composite materials and steel that will not decay like the wooden benches currently in place at the park. The Park Bench Donation Project is designed to create places of rest in the 24 miles of trails in the park.
Working with Raven Rock State Park it is our goal is to replace all of the benches in the park with these non-decay benches.
Bench sponsorships in the amount of $500 each are being accepted. Your generous donation will be recognized on an engraved plaque attached to your sponsored bench.
When donating a bench you will be able to remember a person or acknowledge a business on a plaque mounted on the bench. You can also request to have the bench placed on a particular trail if you wish.
To order a bench, download the Bench Donation Project form, fill it out and return it to Friends of Raven Rock, PO Box 1572, Lillington, NC 27546, or you can hand it in at the park office the next time you visit.
