The iconic bench of New York City's Parks department was developed for use at the 1939 World's Fair, which was held in New York during 1938 and 1939. Robert Moses and Kenneth Lynch collaborated on the final design to maximize comfort and to take advantage of manufacturing processes. Over the years we have further improved on the design and are still a preferred manufacturer of the bench due to our accuracy to the original details. This bench is widely used in parks with landscape design plans from Fredrick Law Olmsted. Many variations of the design have been added to satisfy changing needs in park use. Of particular note is the variation which includes recycled plastic lumber slats. We developed an exclusive external reinforcing system to provide the added strength RPL requires to be able to handle the span between bench supports.
