Easter Lake Bridge Plaques

Easter Lake Park

The 6.2-mile Mark C. Ackelson Trail winding around Easter Lake provides an ideal place for outdoor recreation and scenic views for park visitors. Cycling, skating, and hiking opportunities along the trail lie adjacent to playground equipment, fishing piers, a boat ramp, and several picnic areas. 

The trail has many bridges, but the one that stands out to trail users is the 440’ bridge that spans the western arm of the lake. This multiple span bridge mirrors the bow-string design concept of the other bridges on the trail, but the two twin piers with observation bump-outs makes the already scenic bridge an enjoyable spot to pause and enjoy the quiet beauty of Easter Lake.

Purchase a Plaque

Along the railing of the pedestrian bridge, individual bridge plaque sponsors are recognized with a plaque bearing their name or company name, friend or loved ones’ name(s).

  • A $130 donation entitles you to a plaque until all spaces have been sold.
  • Each plaque is an engraved aluminum with satin brush finish measuring 4”w x 21⁄4” h.
  • Sponsors may include up to two lines of text with 17 characters each, including spaces, for a total of 34 characters per plaque.
  • An additional line at the top of the plaque, reading — In Memory of — may be added upon request at no charge.

 

*We (GOF) are incredibly grateful for the support of donors who create funds for a specific purpose with the Foundation. Those donations provide the funding necessary for the us to carry out our purposes. While we are very appreciative of the support, restrictive funds require administrative resources to administer and monitor. Given this, the Foundation has determined that a small portion of all gifts contributed for a specific purpose may be used to defray operating costs of the Foundation. If a donor contributes any amount for a specific purpose, the donor shall be deemed to have consented to an allocation of 10% of the amount for administrative expenses of the Foundation. This policy shall be effective for all gifts contributed after the date of its adoption, as of January 22, 2014.
