This tour of West Rock’s Botanical Garden of Healing, located along the West River, will be led by the parents who initiated the creation of the garden. Dedicated to the over 600 people who have lost their lives to gun violence in New Haven, the Botanical Garden of Healing serves as a powerful testament to many citizens’ commitment to end the cycle of violence here in New Haven. On this tour, you will walk through the garden, where 21 trees, 111 shrubs and over 1500 perennials were planted in the last year.
