Benches


This year the Elizabeth Park Conservancy renovated the 600 benches in the park.
A vendor scraped and repainted the metal supports and replaced all of the wooden slats.  
The project was supported by generous donations.

If they redid 600 benches that was a lot of wood! I LOVE it that the park is so well loved that enough donations were raised to support this.

Now to sit and rest a bit in the dappled Sunday warmth.

Sounds like a very worthwhile project.

Here the funds are through the city, with a schedule for replacement of park benches and playground equipment set up.

600! Gosh, it must be a large park. It's very nice to be able to sit comfortably on a generous bench and watch the world go by.

Quite a lot of benches. This spot alone looks like a fantastic spot for a bit of respite.

That's worth a few bucks. It does the community good.

Big job but so worth it! I don't know if the park needs a bench every six or eight feet but there's little less welcoming than a shabby bench.

600 hundred benches! That is amazing. The tree is the star in this photo. It looks magnificent. I also like the way the light is reflecting off of it.

600 hundred benches? Surely you jest! It must be a huge park.

That is a lot of benches. Where do they put 600 benches? The renovation would have taken a lot of "generous" donations for sure!
