A plan is underway to install more benches in neighborhoods for daily walkers. This is an excellent idea and will encourage more people to go outside knowing they have a resting place near by. Also, a bench in a loved one’s memory would be nice to consider.

I love the bench project! I was telling my husband about it last night. He and I have been doing weekend hikes in Western Massachusetts. We realize that we are more cautious than we might be when we set limits because there are no benches. With benches in place, we would probably walk farther.

Your community is fortunate to benefit from your contribution to the quality of life there! Your benches are a wonderful symbol of design impacting lives.

My mother now relies on a walker for stability, but it has not deterred her from our short walks around town. Adding more benches locally would give us more options of places to go – as each bench becomes a destination and rewards our efforts to get there!

It’s important to me to get outside each day with my young children to exercise and interact with the world around us. Having a bench along our usual route would be so helpful – as a place to sit together, give the kids a juice-box and gear up for the rest of our walk.
