From February to May, 2016, the Walk of Heroes conducted Phase I to raise $162,000 to accomplish 11 major repairs at the Walk of Heroes Park. During phase I we raised a little over $28,000 which allowed us to get the Bead Site Fountain and the ground control box repaired/refurbished.
The fountain is now working thanks to the generosity of many individual and business donations to accomplish this major restoration. This video shows the work accomplished and the operation of the restored fountain.
We have a long way to go, however, to completely accomplish the remaining 10 area to restore the park to a fully functioning Memorial which presents its awesome aesthetic value to all who visit. Take a few moments to watch this video which shows what we have left to accomplish at the Walk of Heroes. The Phase II Restoration Project is launching today.
The Walk of Heroes now has sustaining memberships to help us maintain the components of the park forward. You can become a sustaining member here
