Park Enhancements with Naming Potential

Additional enhancements are planned for Lake Norcentra Park. When you sponsor one of these projects, you establish a legacy and make your own mark on the park and the Rochester community. For more information about these projects and other possible naming options, contact Larry Stewart at

Benches and Picnic Tables. You may purchase picnic tables and/or benches for Lake Norcentra Park that include a plaque on each item. This is a great way to honor relatives, classmates, or other individuals who have influenced your life. The tables and benches are made of durable polywood. While this material is considerably more expensive than wood, it does not require painting and is well suited for long-term use. Picnic tables may be purchased for $1,300 each and benches for $1,200 by accessing the donate button above. Be sure to specify in the comment section under tribute gift which item(s) you are funding. If the gift is being made in memory or honor of someone, specify the name(s) as well.

Amphitheatre. This four-tier stone structure is planned for the lake edge near Gallaher Center. Located in one of the favorite areas for viewing Lake Norcentra, the amphitheatre will be ideal for small gatherings such as concerts, theatre, weddings, and outdoor classes. This structure has been funded by two alumni and will be constructed as soon as materials are once again available.
