If you have passed by City Hall recently chances are you have seen the stunning Boston Garden of Hope. Surrounded by luscious flowers with over one thousand individualized bricks and plaques to pay tribute to family members who have passed away from cancer, it really is breathtaking. In the center is a wonderful wooden gazebo that has three benches which also commemorates the memory of loved ones who have passed from cancer. Living in Boston, it can be easy to miss subtle places. We highly recommend going to see the Garden to pay tribute, even if it’s only for a few minutes.
Overlooking the Boston Public Market and in the Boston City Hall Plaza, there is no better place the Garden of Hope could be. The Garden was built in 2010 with amazing support from the great Mayor Menino. In 2015 the gazebo was dedicated to Mayor Menino to honor the memory of him.
The Conquer Cancer Coalition of Massachusetts is the incredible group who made it possible for the Garden to be created. Donations that were raised during the creation of the Garden went toward organizations helping to fight cancer, cancer research companies, support groups, and countless more, according to their website.
