Como Park Zoo & Conservatory


A Commemorative Donor Bench recognizes your gift to Como Park Zoo and Conservatory while providing a unique enhancement to the grounds. Commemorative benches are a great way to remember a loved one, a special memory or to be used as a memorial.

Benches include a bronze plaque, located on or near your bench, with your custom message.


Plaques are placed in the available bench location of your choice. Locations will be reserved in order of applications received.


Benches are $5,000. They are suitable for both individuals and corporations.

For more information, call 651-487-8229.





In 1999 Como Friends began managing two brick programs, one previously managed by Como Zoo and another by the Conservatory. Now, in 2013, due to space issues and changes to the Campus Master Plan, we are no longer able to continue accepting brick inscription requests.

Donations to Como Friends in support of Como Park Zoo and Conservatory can still be made in honor or memory of someone or something here. Public recognition of these gifts (of $100 and above) is made in the Como Friends Annual Report.

In the event that construction projects interfere with the viability of existing bricks, Como Friends will make every effort to maintain donor sentiment. A new recognition display will be implemented.

Thank you for your past brick purchases and thoughtful support of Como Friends! Effective 10/31/13
