The Derby Greenway Committee has restored the historic National Humane Alliance Fountain at the Division Street entrance to the Derby Greenway and surrounded it with a beautiful brick plaza and the new Derby Hall of Fame, benches and trees as it begins a second century as a city landmark.  The public is still invited to be part of this historic effort by purchasing individually engraved bricks that will make up the plaza.

The new lions heads are in and working! Click here for story.

In early 2007, the city took delivery of the lion's head spigots which fed the large watering bowl at the center of the fountain restored by a sculptor in South Dakota.

Bricks are a great way to create a personal legacy that will add to the allure of the Fountain and Greenway for generations to come. This is a great opportunity to memorialize a loved one, honor a recent achievement, celebrate a friend or relative, or leave a personal observation or reflection. The bricks make great gifts!

The bricks are being sold in two sizes. The smaller brick is 4"x8" and has room for three lines of text with each line containing up to eighteen characters and will sell for $55. The larger bricks are 8"x8" and can contain up to six lines of text with the same eighteen character per line limit and cost $110.

Custom graphics can be added to the bricks for an additional setup charge of $50 per brick plus $8 for engraving on each brick.

Bench Sponsorships Closed

The City has also installed 13 benches along the Greenway, and sponsorships for individual benches have been sold. The benches come with an engraved plate which can contain up to four lines of text. Each line can contain up to 37 characters. The price for a bench sponsorship was $500.
