Lake Harriet Peace Garden in Summer

The Peace Garden was created out of an earlier rock garden that had fallen into disrepair as a remembrance of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

The Spirit of Peace Sculpture is surrounded by stations that guide one through the process of folding a paper crane and many cranes are tucked into the sculpture itself.

The Peace Garden is just one of a number of gardens that make up the Lyndale Gardens complex.

The Annual/Perennial Gardens are just visible from the Peace Garden.

That garden features two large boarders that are just beginning to take on their summer blossoms.

The Rose Garden lies just beyond.

The other side of the Peace Garden nestles alongside the Thomas Sadler Roberts Bird Sanctuary, another oasis of peace.
