It's time... to remember that tragedy nurtures the good in all of us.
The Chardon Living Memorial Park was conceived by a community of supporters that suffered a tragedy and wanted to give something back to the survivors and the community.
On February 27, 2012, a school shooting occurred which resulted in children that lost their lives, families that lost loved ones, friends that lost schoolmates. A tragedy that redefined what was normal for a small community.
Concerned citizens have bonded together to provide a historic record, honor the innocent victims and deliver a message of hope for generations to come. This park is designed to provide a place for reflection and create spiritual awareness. The effort is to upgrade a walking trail, create an outdoor fitness area and a children’s playground complete with commemoration plaques and a welcoming statue.
