North Bay’s Waterfront Park is coming to life! The “Leaves of Inspiration” Pergola foundation has risen from the bricked Civic Plaza at Oak and Ferguson Streets (in front of the Discovery North Bay Museum). On August 4th, 2012 we celebrated the Grand Opening of the pergola to an outstanding crowd. It was a day to remember… and we all left inspired!
Check out the video of the Pergola Grand Opening!
On Nov 24, 2010 – CWF launched its first-ever public fundraising efforts, the “Leaves of Inspiration Pergola”, to raise funds for our $1 million commitment to the final infrastructure phase of our Waterfront Park. This phase includes shaping and greening of the entire park, including berming, planting the initial trees and shrubs, development of the spiral mound for the future children’s area, most of the Civic Plaza as well as landscaped parking areas.
The “Leaves of Inspiration Pergola” is a unique architectural masterpiece, a one of a kind sculpture, and a focal point in our 33 acre Waterfront Park in the heart of our city. The Pergola is a free-standing trellis-like structure that will support 2,500 stainless steel numbered leaves engraved with the name of individuals who have inspired others -individuals, your family, your children, your parents, or non-profit organizations. Their story and photos will be displayed on a public kiosk at the Discovery North Bay Museum, as well as on this site. The stories will recount the strengths and values that have made our lives better and contributed to our community.
Each leaf costs $500 and a full $500 tax receipt will be issued. By purchasing a Leaf, you’ll be helping to build the Park – a place of inspiration for us all.
