Brick By Brick – Building The Children’s Garden, One Brick At A Time

UPDATE: July 2018 

The ABC Garden was completed in February of 2018. More than 100 (and counting!) engraved bricks have been laid around it, demonstrating the support we’ve received for taking on this ambitious project. There is still plenty of room to add YOUR brick to the cause!

We are currently in planning for Phase 2 – The Pollination Station. We appreciate your continued support through volunteerism, in-kind sponsorship, donations, and brick endowments. Call or email me if you’d like to volunteer or have a fabulous idea for a fundraiser – our number is 239-533-7575, or CLICK to email me.

May 2017: The Lakes Park Enrichment Foundation’s latest project is the Children’s Garden. We’ve completed the infrastructure, fencing, and archway, and we’ve just successfully raised the funds for Phase 1 – The ABC Garden. Hurricane Irma caused construction delays in 2017. Ground was finally broken for The ABC Garden on December 12th, 2017. The new timeline for completion of Phase 1 is winter of 2018. We are hoping for completion in time for our Lakes Park Garden Day celebration on February 17th, 2018.

Design work and construction for Phases 2, 3, and 4 still remain to be funded. In a moment of brilliance, our current Board President, Barbara Manzo, was inspired to fund the rest of the Children’s Garden by paving its walkways with custom-engraved bricks.

Now, with your help, we can build the Children’s Garden “one brick at a time”. Custom-engraved bricks make great gifts to celebrate the birth of a child, Mother’s Day, anniversaries, or birthdays. They also make a lasting memorial to loved ones we’ve lost.
