If you’re on the hunt for the perfect gift for your fellow Boisean, you’re in luck: Bricks on the Grove Plaza is the ideal present!

Bricks on the Grove Plaza

In 1986, more than 14,000 Boiseans purchased engraved bricks to help fund a new plaza in downtown Boise. Now, 30 years later, you have the chance to stamp your own name on the Grove Plaza.

More than 16,000 personalized bricks are scattered throughout the Grove Plaza. Each brick tells a story of someone who loves the City of Trees. Right now is the perfect time to stop by the plaza to view the bricks and the Christmas tree!

You can read about some of the stories connected to the bricks here. This fun story about a family purchasing a brick all the way from Australia is especially unique!

Don’t miss the opportunity to contribute your own brick to maintain and improve the beautiful plaza. Not only will the money be put to good use, but you’ll be able to bring jealous friends and family by the brick whenever you are downtown. This is a great chance to commemorate something special as well, such as a wedding, graduation, or birth!

Bricks on the Grove Plaza are on sale through December 31, 2016. You can purchase a red brick for $60, or a black brick for $100. Can’t decide what you want to inscribe? Click here.

For those who purchased a brick 30 years ago, the original “founder bricks” are in rough shape. The inscriptions on the “founder bricks” will be re-engraved on new bricks and replaced.

Already have a brick on the plaza, or want to find a friends? This handy tool will help!
