bench photo

The blue benches along Mariners Trail are familiar to all those who walk the Trail. Over the past eight years, FOMT has placed approximately thirty of the benches. These benches were donated by individuals and businesses interested in making a significant addition to Mariners Trail. However, the Trail has now been sufficently covered by benches and FOMT is no longer placing benches.

The cities of Manitowoc and Two Rivers, however, continue to have needs for benches at various parks. If you are interested in donating to one of those locations contact Chad Scheinoha at or Kevin Boehm at

For a complete list of installed benches (as well as other Trail amenities) and their locations, click here.
