The application process for 2017 is currently open and will close on August 1, 2017.  It will reopen after the 13th Honor Program on September 14, 2017.


Guidelines for including victims' names:

The Garden of Peace is a memorial commemorating victims of homicide. Each victim in this garden is united by the circumstances that led to their death. Families and friends of these victims are united in their loss, in their efforts to end violence, and in their continual search to find some peace. It is here in this Garden, we can find some Peace. 

We have created an index to help you locate the names in the Garden. The stones in the riverbed are divided into five sections; A-E; the names on the wall are indicated by panel section. The name of each victim is listed alphabetically with a letter beside it indicating the approxamite location of their stone. The names on the wall will be added to the list next year after engraving. We hope this will assist you in more easily locating the stone of your loved one.
