In 2008, Brantford City Council approved the design and construction of a new Walk of Fame monument structure and feature park space, to pay tribute to Brantford’s distinguished citizens. With the assistance of MMM Group, a design concept and construction drawings for a new monument structure and park space has been completed, based on the principles established by a former Task Force comprised of representatives from the Parks, Recreation, and Water Front Advisory Committee, the Tourism Advisory Committee, and the Heritage Committee, as well as, staff from Planning, Parks and Recreation, and Tourism.
The concept plans for the new Walk of Fame Monument Structure, which includes a re-design of Armories Gore Park located at the intersections of Brant Avenue, Dalhousie and Colborne Streets, are attached below. The surrounding 'waterwise' garden features perennial plantings.
The Walk of Fame was completed in July 2013 and will be dedicated on October 19, 2013.
