Heritage Walk

Vasa Park's beautiful garden Heritage Walk was established in 2009 to give park patrons a way to honor family and friends for generations to come.  The garden is peacefully located near the gazebo and river, featuring numerous flowering plants native to the Fox Valley.  Benches are conveniently located for park visitors to sit and reflect or enjoy the garden's colorful beauty.   Purchasing a paver is a great way to support the park and leave a lasting legacy for future visitors.  Click here to purchase a paver.
