Spirit of Peace

Paper is provided for those that visit the Peace Garden. Each of the stones that surround the Spirit of Peace sculpture gives instructions as to the next step in folding a tsuru. Tsuru is an origami crane which is symbolic of peace, and is part of the cultural heritage of Japan, particularly Hiroshima. While my folding skills are obviously lacking, I am proud to say that I was given a paper crane by a young boy on my last visit to Hiroshima. It was a powerful moment for me, and this garden brings back those memories.
Seventeen years of donations contributed to the rather recent construction of the Peace Garden at Lyndale Park. The garden is located across Roseway Road from the Rose Garden. The key piece of the garden is the Peace Bridge which is still under construction. Each end of the bridge has a stone from Hiroshima and Nagasaki taken from near ground zero after the atomic bomb blasts. Minneapolis is the only city to receive such gifts from both cities.
