Commemorative Heritage Walk

Purple Woods Heritage Hall, located at the Purple Woods Conservation Area, is an initiative to create a natural areas meeting place and education centre to embrace and protect critical habitat in a location accessible to the surrounding local community.  It was constructed from recycled wood materials in the spirit of a rural Ontario barn. 


We have embarked on a prominent “Heritage Walk” paved with bricks inscribed with the names of people our visitors want to remember, or names of people in our community that Central Lake Ontario Conservation (CLOCA) wants to remember. 

Central Lake Ontario Conservation has made these bricks available to families and individuals wishing to honour someone special.  The minimum contribution for each commemorative brick is $100.  Heritage bricks measure 9 inches square (22.5cm square) and are engraved using a technology that will not fade, chip, oxidize or peel. 

All proceeds from the Heritage Walk program will benefit the education and outreach programs provided by Central Lake Ontario Conservation at Purple Woods Conservation Area, including support for our annual Purple Woods Maple Syrup Festival.

Brick orders will be taken on a continuous basis.  Bricks will be placed once the minimum order quantity has been met.  You will be notified when your brick has been placed in Heritage Walk.


Each Brick will be engraved with the name of your choice and offers four lines of wording, maximum 10 characters per line (characters include spaces and any punctuation). Please make sure your engraving information is spelled correctly and printed in the boxes provided.
