Bulb Labyrinth Memorial Garden

A special place to remember babies and children our community has lost


Designed in partnership with the Ithaca Childbearing Loss Network (formerly known as Ithaca Perinatal Loss Support Group), the Bulb Labyrinth Memorial Garden features a wide variety of blooming bulbs and perennials; a wheelchair and stroller-friendly winding stone pathway; sculpture donated by local artists, an open space in the center with a flowering redbud, a peace pole inscribed with Hope, Peace, Love, and Remembrance in 15 languages, and stone benches. The labyrinth provides a place for intimate interaction with bright and bountiful blooms, and invites all to experience it, whether for contemplation and solace, or exuberant exploration. The Bulb Labyrinth Memorial Garden invites you to find your own unique journey along its pathways.

Bulbs symbolize hope and the cycle of life. Labyrinths have been used for centuries by many cultures around the world to promote healing and meditation. The labyrinth at the Ithaca Children's Garden is a beautiful, peaceful, uplifting and sensory experience for all to enjoy, in times of great joy, and in times of grief. The labyrinth provides room for community engagement and healing and allow individuals to bring their own interpretation and meaning to their visit.

This unique garden was built with 1,180 labor hours from 320 volunteers who came and helped turn this vision into a real place for our community to enjoy for generations.
