Lyndale Park Peace (Rock) Garden
This rock garden is part of the Lyndale Park Gardens, and is a flowery tribute to the bombing of Nagasaki and Hiroshima in the year 1945. Peace stones from the two cities can be found on display here, alongside other ancient formations that have historical significance. On August 6 each year, a ceremony is held to commemorate the tragedy. Spring flowers are in full bloom from April 15 - June 1, so you may match your visit accordingly. Ample parking space is available.
This is a special park worth visiting. It has beautiful gardens and nice paths, including a peace walk. At the highest part of the park, there is the Spirit of Peace sculpture, with instructions on how to fold an origami peace crane. Every year on August 6 morning there is a lovely peace event at the park to commemorate the US atomic bombing of Hiroshima, Japan. The bridge at the park is flanked by granite peace stones from ground zero of the 1945 atomic bomb blasts in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Minneapolis is the only US city to have received such gifts from the citizens of both Japanese cities. The park is across the street from the fragrant rose garden and about one block from popular Lake Harriet.
