Commemorative Benches and Fountains

Remember those you love or a special event with a gift of a commemorative bench or fountain at the Honolulu Zoo, creating a lasting legacy while providing a much needed amenity for our visitors for years to come.

These Victoria style commemorative benches are made with recycled plastic lumber, in keeping with the Zoo’s commitment to conservation and sustainable practices. Our stone aggregate concrete fountains are a huge benefit for visitors to our zoo, these decorative and durable fountains will make a wonderful addition to the zoo while recognizing a special event or person in your life.

For a 100% tax-deductible donation of $2,500, these benches or fountains can be personalized with a message of the donor’s choosing on a 2” x 5” bronze plaque. Plaque inscriptions may be up to three lines with 20 characters per line, including punctuation. The plaque is prominently installed on the front of the bench. The benches or fountains are placed in the most needed locations, but every effort is made to accommodate special requests. Additional costs may be incurred for special requests in areas necessitating additional infrastructure (concrete pads, plumbing etc.). Plaques will be ordered after the donation has been received. Donors should allow about eight to ten weeks from that date for their bench to be placed in the park.

For an additional cost catering for a special event can be arranged through our onsite caterer, Taste of the Wild. For questions please call Anthony Poponi at 808-926-3191 extension 155 or email
