Unfortunately, we have had to suspend the Commemorative Brick program as of 2018

Order a commemorative brick and contribute a permanent part of the Grant Bark Park!

Your brick will be laser inscribed with your text, and will placed in the commemorative circle in Grant Bark Park.

Bricks are placed in the 'Brick Circle' at the north end of Grant Bark Park

Please note:  Bricks have to be ordered, delivered and installed. They are ordered in groups, so it may be some time before your brick in actually installed. We will notify you when your brick is installed. However, for now, brick installation is on a sporadic basis – we are working to improve this!

Thank you for your support of Grant Bark Park!

  • A brick purchase costs $100.
  • Maximum 5 lines, up to 40 characters total including spaces & punctuation.

Please write out the brick text in the boxes exactly as you wish it to appear.  Your brick will look like this:

Please note, as of 5.1.04, the Chicago Park District adopted a policy limiting the wording on commemorative bricks:

“The only inscriptions that will be allowed are those that:

a) contain only the name(s) of the donor(s) or family member(s) of the donor(s) including any official title, such as Dr. or Alderman – OR

b) commemorate the death of a family member, and in such instances may include the name of the deceased, the words “In memory of” and the deceased person’s name, and a date OR

c) in instances in which the park allows pets, the name of the donor’s pet.”

The document outlining and rationalizing this policy is available here.
