Las Vegas – After a mass shooting that killed 59 people and injured more than 500 at the Route 91 Harvest Festival near Mandalay Bay on October 1, 2017, the community came together to build a new healing garden as a prompt and thoughtful response to the tragedy. The healing garden was built by 400 plus volunteers in just four days.

Background

Stonerose Landscapes principals Jay Pleggenkuhle and Daniel Perez designed a memorial garden constructed on city of Las Vegas property at 1015 South Casino Center Boulevard. The garden features a wall of remembrance, a grove of trees, shrubs, flowers, walkways of pavers and benches – all to create something beautiful out of something horrific.

“This is a community garden created by the community, for the community, to heal the community, Pleggenkuhle said. “The amazing thing about this project is that everything is donated.”

This garden park was completed in a matter of days days, in time for a ribbon-cutting at Friday, Oct. 6, 2017 with Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman, Ward 3 Councilman Bob Coffin, and those who contributed and participated.
