Memorial Brick Program

Personalized memorial bricks are a great way to honor a loved one or your family name. Any visitor to the zoo will notice the brick paving that lines many of the paths. Each brick has a name or message inscribed in granite, so the memory will truly be set in stone. 

Memorial bricks come in a range of sizes and character options, so that youIMG_8164 can customize it to your preferences. Upon installation, you will receive a letter to show exactly where your brick is located. When you purchase a brick, you become part of a long-lasting memorial that will also help fund new improvements at the Lincoln Park Zoo.

* As of 2022, we have a new brick paver section near our Bald Eagle exhibit that will be reserved for veterans. If you plan to memorialize a special veteran and would like their brick installed in this section, please inform us when you send in your form.
