Initiated in 2006, Bricks by the Lake is a program that raises funds for improvements in lakeside parklands while also enabling personal memorials on engraved bricks Located at Col. Connelly Park at the head of Lake Quannapowitt, the program is authorized by the Wakefield Town Council and administered by the Friends of Lake Quannapowitt.
Surrounding the flagpole there are hundreds of personal messages documenting family love, love of the lake and town, or secret notes others may not be able translate. Out of those heartfelt missives, park renovations, including the nearby playground for young children, have been funded. And there are more improvements coming. It is love put into action in manner that is permanent within tasteful architectural planning.
Applications for engraved bricks are accepted year round and are imbedded annually each spring. Every other year, there is a dedication service for all bricks donated over the past two years.
Bricks come in two sizes: 4×8 for (3 lines of 15 characters) for a donation of $150 and 8×8 for $250 (5 lines of 15 characters) for a donation of $250.
