Construction is under way for the new Nature Paver Plaza at Scovill Zoo, designed as a tribute to our 50th Anniversary, as we PAVE THE WAY to another 50 years!

The plaza at the front entrance to the zoo will also welcome visitors to Project Playground and the new Scovill Sculpture Walk, a highly visible location to recognize your loved ones and show your support for Scovill Zoo. The plaza is scheduled to be completed in May 2017, coinciding with the zoo’s 50th anniversary season of celebration!

A commemorative paver can be purchased in honor or memory of a loved one, to commemorate a special occasion, or simply proclaim your family’s love for the zoo.

Three types of bricks are available:

  1. 4” x 8”             2 lines with 16 characters on each line            $100
  2. 8” x 8”             3 lines with 16 characters on each line            $150
  3. 12” x 12”         4 lines with 16 characters on each line            $250

All text will be in capital letters and centered on the paver. If you are interested in multiple pavers, please purchase each one individually. The 12” x 12” paver has space for an image or logo (additional cost applies). Please refer questions to Jill Applebee at the Decatur Parks Foundation: 217-422-5911 or
