The Las Vegas community came together to build a new community healing garden in response to the Oct. 1 tragedy, when a lone gunman massacred 58* individuals and injured 489* more who were attending a music festival. Stonerose Landscapes principals, Jay Pleggenkuhle and Daniel Perez, designed a memorial garden constructed on city of Las Vegas property at 1015 S. Casino Center Blvd. 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.
The city of Las Vegas is accepting cards on behalf of the community to give those who want to help a way to share their feelings. To participate, mail or drop off cards at:
