In honor of Gold Star Families across the country, the Borough of Hatboro is constructing a Gold Star Garden in Miller Meadow Park, 413 S. York Road, Hatboro, PA 19040.
Designed by Borough Council, Staff, and a group of dedicated volunteers, this Gold Star Garden will honor families whose loved ones paid the ultimate sacrifice to our country while also paying tribute to Veterans and those currently serving in our Military.
In order to accomplish this project, the Borough of Hatboro is selling engraved bricks and benches that will be used to construct the walkway of the Gold Star Garden.
Bricks are available for purchase for $100.00 each and can be engraved to honor loved ones who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country, veterans of the armed forces, or even those currently serving.
The 4”x8” bricks will be used to construct a lit path leading up to the Gold
Star Garden. Pavers can be dedicated to a Gold Star Family, Veteran, Current
Service Member, or Military Organization. A sample brick inscription can be
In Honor Of
John M. Doe, US Army
Bricks can be customized however you would like and do not have to follow the above format. This only serves as a sample to inspire inscriptions for your loved ones.
The center of the garden will be adorned with the Fallen Soldier memorial statue
to honor those our country has lost. The American Flag and Gold Star flag will
be flown proudly above the garden with decorative lighting throughout the area
to keep the memory of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice shining on.
All funds raised through brick sales will go directly towards the costs to construct the garden including materials, plantings, lighting, and more.
