The City of Columbus is excited to announce the 1821 Bicentennial Trail Brick Campaign.  This trail extension is the seminal project for the Columbus Area Bicentennial and will include architectural and art elements to encompass the 2021 Bicentennial theme of “Common Ground.”  The Bicentennial Trail will add to nearly 30 miles of bicycle and pedestrian paths extending throughout the city and was identified several years ago as one of the most needed connections in the trail network.  The trail will be constructed along First Street behind City Hall, the IU School of Art and Architecture, and the Bartholomew County Jail, and will extend from Water Street to Lafayette Avenue, connecting to the Haw Creek Trail.

This is an excellent opportunity for individuals, families, businesses, and friends, to purchase bricks in commemoration of a specific event, in honor or in memory of someone important in their lives, or to celebrate time living in Columbus. Bricks will be placed along this important trail connection which will continue to promote the walkability of our city.  Funding will be provided by the Columbus Redevelopment Commission, Columbus Park Foundation, and private donors.  Groundbreaking for the trail is expected sometime in December with construction to be completed in the summer of 2022.  Bricks along the trail make wonderful gifts for your loved ones who will be remembered for years to come by those who walk or bike the trail.
