Park Benches: What to Consider

Park Benches: What to Consider

Park benches are a decorative and useful addition to any outdoor area, whether it's outside your business or in a community area. Benches come in a wide array of designs to fit various spaces and needs. There are many considerations when looking into commercial benches for your space.


Park benches can be made from a variety of materials such as wood, metal, or plastic. Consider the durability, maintenance requirements, and style of each material to choose the best option for your needs.

Consider recycled benches to honor the outdoor area where your benches will sit. Superior Amenities’ recycled benches are made of recycled plastic, so they are an environmentally friendly choice. Also, they have a strong and durable design that is proven to last, while also providing comfort and versatile seating choices.


Park benches come in various sizes, so it's essential to consider the space available for the bench and the number of people it will need to accommodate comfortably.


Comfort is important, especially if you expect people to sit on the bench for extended periods. Consider the design of the bench, including the seat and backrest, to ensure it is comfortable.

Weather Resistance

If you live in an area with harsh weather conditions, consider a bench that can withstand these conditions. Look for materials that are resistant to rust, corrosion, and fading. 

How long do park benches last? The length of time a park bench will last depends on the materials and craftsmanship. Superior Amenities makes benches that are designed to last with high-quality construction and durable materials like metal or recycled plastic. Our steel benches are also coated with thermoplastic PVC to protect them from outdoor elements and to help them last as long as possible.

Style and Design

The design and style of the bench can enhance the aesthetic appeal of the park. Consider the surroundings and choose a bench that complements the environment. Commercial benches come in different styles to fit a variety of locations. For example, you can choose geometric benches to fit around a tree or a community sculpture. You can base your decision on function or aesthetics. Just know that Superior Amenities offers many park bench options to choose from. These include metal benches with or without backs, ones with or without armrests, choices with straight edges or curved seating, and many more — plus, they come in different colors to fit the space. 


Finally, consider the cost of the bench. We’ll work with you to find a bench that is within your budget without compromising on quality.

Add Function to an Outdoor Area

Benches give your customers or patrons a place to sit while they're waiting for someone, or just to relax and enjoy the outdoors. These products make a space more inviting and encourage people to congregate there. Add one to a bus stop, in front of your business or organization, and in downtown or public areas. They are perfect additions to areas where people do a lot of walking, such as an outdoor shopping center or a community garden.

You can also encourage people to enjoy outdoor scenery with a bench. Put one in front of a public lake so people can sit and enjoy the water views, add them throughout a park so people can sit and reflect in nature, and put one in front of a community sculpture or statue to help visitors enjoy it.
