Located in downtown Las Vegas on Casino Center Blvd. just north of Charleston Blvd., the Community Healing Garden serves as a place for all to go to remember the lives we lost to the 1 October Route 91 tragedy.

The memorial garden features a wall of remembrance, a grove of trees, shrubs, flowers, walkways of pavers, and benches. The oak tree in the middle of the garden was donated by Sigfried and Roy and is known as the tree of life. The tree of life sits in a heart-shaped planter adorned with tiles made by victims’ families, survivors, and community members.

The Las Vegas community came together to build the garden in the days after the 2017 tragedy. The garden was constructed by the city and volunteers in just four days. The garden was sketched out on a napkin by Jay Pleggenkuhle and Daniel Perez of Stonerose Landscapes on Oct. 2, 2017. Hundreds of volunteers brought the plan to life, and the garden was officially opened on Oct. 6, 2017.

Every year since on the night of October 1st, the city of Las Vegas hosts a remembrance ceremony at the garden to remember those lives that were lost.
