Support Bute Park

Caring for collections of trees and special plants within a historic garden is a major responsibility.

The money we raise is vital to maintaining Bute Park for future generations.

If you would like to help us care for Bute Park via a donation your contribution will be greatly appreciated and used wisely.

For information on donating a bench or tree in other Cardiff parks visit Outdoor Cardiff.

Donated Seat Scheme

Donating a seat is the perfect way to celebrate a loved one or commemorate a milestone and would even make a great wedding gift. This could include a plaque to record your favourite moments.

The Donated Seat Scheme is currently closed, we hope to offer a new list of benches in August 2024.

Style: Victorian style bench 

All benches are offered on a first come first served basis from receipt of form and payment.

Costs vary depending on the groundworks required at each location. 

The following documents contain all the information and an application form:

Or for more information please contact us.


Donating a tree is a wonderful way to keep your memories alive or commemorate an event within a stunning natural setting. The tree can be enjoyed regularly by family and friends and appreciated by the thousands of park visitors each year.

Commemorate a loved one or a special event by dedicating a tree in the arboretum.

The 2024 scheme has not opened yet, for a booking form and prices please contact us.

A living legacy

Donations from two Bute Park-loving individuals helped set up bee hives and supported the mentoring of enthusiastic park employees by local beekeepers, Nature’s Little Helpers.

Bute Park honey is available to buy seasonally from Bute Park Visitor Centre and Pettigrew Tea Rooms.
