The Lilies of the Valley Garden of Life and Remembrance is located on the Gateway Greenway on Meridian Street in downtown Huntsville. It is a place to celebrate and remember those affected by gynecologic cancers.
You can help us plant seeds in the garden and establish a lasting legacy by purchasing a brick in honor or in memory of a woman who has been or was diagnosed with a gynecologic cancer*. Corporate and individual sponsorships are also available.
October 2011 Garden Update:
If you have visited the Garden of Life and Remembrance recently, you may have noticed that there has been some plant loss. We experienced a problem with our irrigation system, and the overwatering caused the loss of several of the boxwoods in the borders around the garden. We are having all of the boxwoods removed, and the beds mulched. In the spring we will replant those areas. In September we added bricks that were ordered this year, and we have added names to the base of our Spirit of Hope Statue. We hope you will continue to enjoy the garden.
Brick Orders may be placed anytime throughout the year and are installed annually in September. Orders must be received before the end of June to be placed in September of the same year. Orders placed after June will be installed in September of the following year. Orders received in the fall will be placed the September of the following year.
*Gynecologic cancers include cancers of the cervix, ovary, endometrium, uterus, vulva or vagina.
Please note: Meridian Street is REOPENED
The attached map is updated to reflect this change.
