For 150 years, the Port of San Francisco has welcomed the world to its waterfront. Now, local residents and businesses can be part of that effort through a new and unique program that allows citizens to welcome the world to the Citys newest public park and Waterfront Walk at Pier 27 adjacent to the new James R. Herman Cruise Terminal. Helping fund the park is a campaign by which personalized bricks can be purchased online at www.sfportbricks.com.

For 150 years, the Port of San Francisco has welcomed the world to its waterfront. Now, local residents and businesses can be part of that effort through a new and unique program that allows citizens to welcome the world to the City’s newest public park and Waterfront Walk at Pier 27 adjacent to the new James R. Herman Cruise Terminal. Helping fund the park is a campaign by which personalized bricks can be purchased online at www.sfportbricks.com.

"We think a commemorative brick for the Waterfront Walk is a perfect way to memorialize so many that have worked and enjoyed our waterfront from the Gold Rush era to present day," said Executive Director Monique Moyer of the Port of San Francisco, noting that several port officials and colleagues had already put in their orders for the project. "This is a great way for everyone that has walked the walk in preserving San Francisco’s vital waterfront to be recognized proudly and permanently." 


When the new park opens in fall 2014, the Waterfront Walk will be a major feature of the design with two sizes of bricks available for purchase: four inches by eight inches ($150) and eight inches by eight inches ($300). The purchase is tax-deductible. After installation of the Waterfront Walk, a locator map will be provided to assist individuals and businesses in finding their bricks.

"This is the definition of a once-in-a-lifetime offer," said Public Relations Manager Renée Martin, confirming that there is a limited space available for the installation of the Waterfront Walk. "We expect to sell out and already interest is high, so don’t miss this opportunity to be a part of San Francisco history."

In addition to online orders, commemorative bricks for the Waterfront Walk can also be purchased by phone at (855) 767-8279.
