Inscription Rules and Regulations

The City of Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department provides a number of opportunities for inscribed bricks, pavers and plaques to be placed on publicly owned and managed parkland. Donors propose the wording that they would like have placed on the pavers, bricks and plaques.  Pavers, bricks and plaques become the property of the City of Lincoln, and as such, the Parks and Recreation Department has the responsibility to review and approve wording to assure that it meets acceptable standards. In all instances, inscriptions may not include reference to race, religion, color, deity, ethnic heritage, sexual orientation, disability status, or political affiliation
