The Foundation is supporting the City’s efforts to renovate Paloma Park after it was damaged by vandals.  This Fall, the City will be replacing the equipment in this neighborhood park that serves over 500 children, but the Foundation will help provide a new synthetic grass section for toddlers – similar to the one in place at Village Park – that will be colorful, durable, weather resistant and vandal resistant.


WE NEED YOUR HELP.  Through the Burlingame Parks and Recreation Foundation’s BUY-A-BRICK Program, you can be part of an enduring piece of Paloma Park.  For just $100, you can choose a message to be laser engraved on a 4” x 8” brick paving this wonderful neighborhood play space.  We also offer 8” x 8” bricks for donations over $500, and 12” x 12” bricks for donations over $1,000.  This is an opportunity to recognize a special person in your life, or commemorate a special occasion…the possibilities are endless!


As a special thank you gift for participating in this fundraiser, donors who purchase the 8” x 8” or 12” x 12” bricks will receive a 4” x 4” replica black granite tile with identical engraving to that on the larger brick.  We hope the replica tile will be proudly displayed at home or at work…it can even be used as coaster!


Purchasing your custom engraved brick is simple…just visit the Paloma Park Buy-A-Brick website at for easy to follow instructions.
