Memorial Brick Program Purchase

The memorial brick program provides the public with the opportunity to honor loved ones. 

Please note: This program is for memorial purposes only and not for commemoration.

The brick is made of red clay (7 5/8” X 3 5/8” X 1 ¼”) and can be purchased for $150. The requestor is responsible for all costs and the brick must be purchased through and installed by the City. 

Memorial bricks will be placed along Linear Park on Pacific Street with the exact location determined by the City.  The City will order the brick once there are multiple orders, which may take a few weeks.

Due to the size of the brick, there are only 3 lines of text with 20 characters a line. Unfortunately no artwork is allowed. All text must be pre-approved by the City.

The City will assume full responsibility for the upkeep, care, and maintenance throughout the brick’s lifetime. The City will retain the right to dispose of the brick when it is no longer cost effective to maintain it.  If the brick becomes damaged or deteriorated, the donor will be given an opportunity to replace the brick at their cost.

Please complete the Gift Acceptance Agreement to request a memorial brick.  Upon submission, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to the payment page.   Both the Gift Acceptance Agreement and payment must be submitted for your request to be processed.

Your request will be reviewed, and City staff will contact you.  If you have questions regarding the Memorial Brick Program, please contact us by email at MemorialProgram@oceansideca.org.

The City no longer offers a Memorial Bench Program or engraving names on the pier. Visit Oceanside is offering the opportunity to purchase a “love lock” at the Harbor, you can find more information here.
