The Fish Creek Community Terrace

The Friends would like to express our thanks to everyone who dedicated a brick along the 25th anniversary brick pathway in front of the Cookhouse. There are close to 300 bricks here that are engraved with the names of community members and positive messages to park visitors. People have dedicated bricks to show their support for Fish Creek, and to commemorate milestones like weddings, anniversaries, new family members, or memorials for those who have passed on.

Now that all of the bricks are installed along the pathway, we have begun planning the next area – the Fish Creek Community Terrace. The terrace will be installed in front of the Cookhouse near the kiosk and all who visit our office or pass by will see the bricks. Every brick tells a story, and we invite you to leave a lasting legacy in Fish Creek Provincial Park by dedicating a brick along the Fish Creek Community Terrace.

If you have a local business, consider having a brick inscribed for your business. It’s great advertising in a very busy area and you will receive a tax receipt. Inscriptions can have 2 lines of text with 16 characters per line, and simple shapes like hearts and circles can be accomplished. Bricks are only $250, and you will receive a tax receipt for your contribution. For more information, contact the Friends or visit https://friendsoffishcreek.org/brick.
