2017 Brick By Brick Picnic Lakes Park Enrichment Foundation Fort Myers FloridaFirst engraved bricks are installed in the Children’s Garden!

Fort Myers, FL – The first engraved bricks have been installed in the Children’s Garden at Lakes Regional Park in Fort Myers!

We’ve been leaking photos on Facebook to demonstrate construction progress in the Children’s Garden. Over the past several weeks, we’ve seen heavy equipment digging in the ground, pouring cement, and shaping the raised bed for the ABC Garden.

Many of these bricks were ordered 10 months ago, through generous donations from park patrons like you. Bricks were ordered online as well as in person at last year’s Brick by Brick Picnic. The proceeds from these brick sales have helped us to pay for Phase I of the Children’s Garden at Lakes Park.

There are plenty of brick slots available, so if you missed the first round, fear not!  Just click this link and you can see YOUR brick installed, too: DONATE A BRICK.  And don’t forget to watch our Facebook page for news about this year’s Brick by Brick Picnic. It will be held on March 18th in the Children’s Garden. We’ll have food, music, and plenty of family-friendly fun – save the date!

We promised you that when the heavy equipment was gone, the bricks would go in – and here they are, so far:
