Please note due to the temperature of the ground, pavers can only be installed during the warmer months. Pavers are installed in batches and the timing of installation is dependent on the complete inscription of the entire 12x48 inch paver. Because of these factors, the wait time may vary.


Honor a loved one or mark a special occasion with a tribute gift on Belle Isle. Bench adoption opportunities are available at Sunset Point for $2,500 for a five year commitment (with a chance to renew) and come with the opportunity to inscribe a 2" x 10" bronze plaque.
