The brick sidewalk is lined with names, dates, memories, history and lots of genealogy. Within the pages below are the bricks that are laid in the walks of Heritage Park; the inscription and a photo if I have. I know some are not so great but I had just got the digital camera - These were done 2006/2007 I have not been able to get back as yet. The hyperlink on names within takes you to a set of blocks

I have taken photos of the some of the bricks and working on getting them all but it takes time and some I have missed because I have not overlapped right or the image came out blurrred. Some are affected by the sunlight or shadowed by me standing in front of them I have not been able to get back to re-take pictures since a done this a couple of years ago.
