Buy a Brick
To maintain the ambience of downtown Arlington Heights, paving bricks are used for the walkways through North School Park and Memorial Park. Residents and businesses of Arlington Heights have contributed by purchasing engraved bricks which are placed in the walkways. This Buy-A-Brick program gives people the opportunity to show family trees, propose marriage, honor a loved one, and celebrate anniversaries, among other things.
North School Park
Recognition in the walkway will be given to donations in the following categories for a 4" x 8" brick paver. Only 13 characters and spaces per line. Three lines maximum per brick.
An individual or not-for-profit group may donate: $100* per brick
A business or corporation may donate: $170* per brick
*Prices in effect from 01/01/13-01/01/14
All donations are tax deductible.
Orders are accepted throughout the year, but will be placed with the engraver on February 1 and August 1. Installation of the bricks is dependent upon the weather, but will be expected in early summer and mid-fall respectively. Due to the paving pattern, bricks can only be grouped in pairs.
