" Memorializing all of the fun we’ve had over the years at Gumbo Limbo in Boca Raton was the best thing I ever did for my family. We can’t wait to see our names in the new walkway every time we return. What a great way to show our support for a local treasure. Thank you, Friends! "

– Darlene Rosa, Member of Friends of Gumbo Limbo


Area to Pave


Each year thousands of visitors experience the wonder of Gumbo Limbo Nature Center. Just this year, two new pavilions were added to the park to provide a fish-eye view of the marine and coastal ecosystems that grace our vast coastline.

We filled our tanks with habitats to support a fascinating array of sea creatures and to give you a fun, up-close and personal educational glimpse of their everyday activities. In the process, you, the visitors, told us one more thing was still needed – a walkway to connect the pavilions, preserve the fragile environment around the tanks, and improve your experiences at the Center. Join us in making this walkway a reality.

Memories to last a lifetime


When you purchase one or more pavers, you not only support the important work being done at Gumbo Limbo, you also leave a lasting memory.

Each message is etched into the brick with a special, high-end glass process that should last a lifetime. The patented laser engraving process offers a level of quality and detail not attainable through traditional techniques. It will not fade, chip, oxidize, peel or separate from the brick for the life of the surface of the engraved brick. Buying a paver will ensure your support lasts a lifetime.

If we reach our goal of selling 2,400 engraved pavers, you can expect to see your pavers in place by year-end. Only 2,400 pavers will be available for purchase in this walkway.

 Unique and Personal


Buying a paver is an opportunity to honor the ones you love. You can honor your family, a loved one, an anniversary, a birthday, a pet, your favorite animal at the Center, a favorite fish, your years of Membership … or almost anyone or anything you treasure the most!

Once your paver is in place in the walkway, you, your family and friends can take pride in knowing that you personally helped preserve the environment and support the good work of Gumbo Limbo Nature Center.

Your purchase of a paver will support general funds for activities performed at Gumbo Limbo, for example:

  • Sea turtle nest monitoring and conservation
  • Nurturance of various stages of the butterfly lifecycle in the insectarium
  • Environmentally-based educational programming
  • Stranded sea turtle response teams
  • Maintenance of on-site marine ecosystems for sub-tropical fish
