The space began as an effort to repurpose a vacant lot that was left after an empty building was demolished. The garden also found its purpose in memorializing those lost to drugs and violence in the community. Capitalizing on the opportunity to create a nature focused memorial space in a crowded metropolis, the lush garden includes towering trees, wooden plank benches, and the mural dedicated to remembering lost community members.
