Buy a lagoon brick and pave the way for a Nicholas Conservatory patio
Give a gift that leaves a legacy by buying a lagoon brick this holiday season.
The Rockford Park District Foundation is selling lagoon bricks that will help pave the way for a new patio area outside of Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens, 1354 N. Second St., Rockford.
The new patio area is part of the Lagoon Restoration Project, which began in October and will be complete in summer 2012.
The Lagoon Restoration Project includes a lagoon overlook deck with related stone wall; a pedestrian bridge; an infinity pond; water features; an aquatic boardwalk; paving and benches; and landscape plantings.
One 7-inch-by-9-inch brick can be purchased for a donation of $150 or more; each brick has five lines of engraving with a 12-character limit per line. Bricks must be purchased by May 1, 2012. Only 2,000 bricks are available, and could be sold out before that date. Gift certificates are available.
Bricks are available to buy online at www.rockfordparkdistrict.org/give, or can be purchased in person at the Rockford Park District Foundation office, 401 S. Main St., Rockford.
