Granite bench legacy program

Several years ago SWTA established the Granite Bench Trail Memorial Program. With a minimum donation of $5000 it is possible to have a magnificent granite bench (crafted from rock local to the area) installed at a mutually agreed upon location along one of the SWTA’s trails.

A commemorative bench is a great way to support the trail. The benches  come with a commemorative inscription plaque with the wording chosen by the purchaser. To date, over 25 of these benches have been sold along sections of the South Whiteshell Trail.

Site selection for new benches is quite straight forward but the locations need to be accessible from the trail. We work closely with our bench purchasers and Parks Branch to select sites that are suitable.


If you are interested in acquiring a bench, or for more information please contact SWTA board members...
