Garden of Peace and Hope Dedication and Ribbon Cutting Scheduled for April 24
The City of Pensacola invites the community to a dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony on Monday, April 24 at 2:30 p.m. for The Garden of Peace and Hope, a memorial for homicide victims. The dedication and ribbon cutting will take place at the memorial, which is located in Corinne Jones Park, 620 W. Government St.
The Garden of Peace and Hope was created as a place of hope and healing to honor the lives of those taken through an act of violence, providing a place of solitude and reflection for their loved ones.
The memorial was created through the collaborative efforts of the City of Pensacola and former Mayor Grover C. Robinson, IV, Lavon Brown and members of Parents Against Injustice and Negligence (P.A.I.N.), Joe DeReuil Associates, David Del Gallo Construction Group, and Christina Talbert of Graceful Ground and Garden.
