Seating Benches

Memorial benches can only be eligible under the criteria for exploration if they are dedicated to a notable figure and that notability is described in the nomination. Mass produced memorial benches dedicated to friends and family are not eligible unless the nominator provides evidence of the individual’s importance to the community. Just stating that someone was important to the community is inadequate.

:+1: Note that benches that are artistically crafted like the bench above can also be considered eligible as works of art, encouraging exploration and could also be nominated as such.

Benches (with or without plaques) can encourage exploration if they are an anchor at a significant point such as a scenic viewpoint.

:+1: The images above are great examples of benches that provide an anchor for a great view and encourage exploration and exercise.
