Welcome to the Public Bench Project

Lots o benches
Great neighborhoods need great public spaces

The Public Bench Project is a website maintained by a loosely affiliated group of Inner Sunset-based public space enthusiasts. We will give a bench to anybody who wants to put a bench outside their building in the public realm – donations are welcome! Contact us and we’d be happy to give you a bench.

This website is intended to encourage and help you bring your own bench into public space – including sidewalks and other common places. Read our Bench Information Guide for more about the bench we’re offering, placement guidelines, and so on.

Visit this website soon for updates on new benches popping up around the neighborhood.

Viva la bench!
