Pave the Park – brick installations for Aug 2nd, 16th, and 23rd
The park is always changing. Plants and trees grow and die, come and go, and so do some of the accessories and equipment we’ve placed here and there. So it has happened with some of our park benches.
A collection of ornate white-painted park benches in the gardens are old and weathered. Most of these benches bore dedications. Judging from some of the dates on the dedications, they may have been around for nearly 30 years. Parks & Rec will remove these benches. The Foundation has ordered engraved bricks to replace the old bench dedications. These bricks have been placed in the Rose Garden.
At some point, the Foundation would like to replace the worn benches. We have been quietly piloting a bench dedication program with a tiny handful of donors, but we admit that the program is “not ready for prime time” yet. We’ll let you know as soon as we have solidified a bench dedication program that helps to improve the park and meets County compliance requirements.
REMINDER: Some factors out of the Foundation’s control can influence the amount of time between receiving your order and getting the brick into the ground. We announce brick installations here on our blog, on our Facebook page, and in our email blasts. Please allow up to 8 weeks before making inquiries. Thank you for your patience.
