The U.S. Space Walk of Fame is the first and only Walk in the nation that honors America's astronauts as well as the men and women behind the scenes who helped America lead the world in space exploration and accomplishments. The Space Walk is one of the major components of a redevelopment master plan professionally designed for Titusville's urban waterfront. The master plan includes a riverwalk running the length of the waterfront that has been designated as the "U.S. Space Walk of Fame". Connecting four major waterfront parks and providing public access along the riverfront, the Space Walk will consist of a promenade composed of walkways, seating areas, railings and lighting. The components will include educational and interpretive stations that explore the specific achievements of individuals and events in a fashion that allows the space message to be communicated to the casual passerby, student groups and visitors who are at the waterfront to witness a launch. The featured elements will be documented through the use of interpretive plaques, public art, sculptures and bronze markers set into the walkways and wall treatments. In addition to the outdoor space displays, the riverwalk will provide public viewing areas of the launch pads enveloped in the panoramic setting of the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge. Thus, the U.S. Space Walk of Fame will be a tribute to the men and women who worked to make America's space program a reality, creating a cosmic journey which will touch the lives of all mankind.
