From Concept to Reality-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 new Walk of Fame monument included a re-design of Armories Gore Park located at the intersections of Brant Avenue, Dalhousie and Colborne Streets. The surrounding 'waterwise' garden features perennial plantings.
PG Certified® Tempered Glass -The City of Brantford's Walk of Fame monument located in Armouries Gore Park, honors the outstanding achievements of local citizens, past and present. There are currently 24 inductees into Brantford's Walk of Fame. The concept plan called for a wall of fame to be constructed in Gore Armouries Park with glass etchings of the 24 people who have been inducted into Brantford’s Walk of Fame.
