Brookside Gardens

Tribute Benches

Brookside Gardens offers a Tribute Bench Program with many lovely bench locations throughout its fifty acres. Each bench is marked with a tribute plaque inscribed with three lines of the donor’s choosing and attached to the bench back for clear view.

The Tribute Bench Program at Brookside Gardens currently has a waiting list.






The Rose Garden at Brookside Gardens has been a favorite destination of visitors since its opening in 1972. Something  about the stunning beauty and seductive fragrance of roses draws visitors to this delightful garden over an over. For many, the Rose Garden holds a special meaning and memories, making it a lovely setting in which to honor a special person or to mark a memorable milestone.

Commemorative bricks are available in two sizes: 4″ x 8″ ($500) and 8″ x 8″ ($1,000). Each brick is engraved with a personal message and placed in the walkway under the wisteria arbor in the Rose Garden.
