Quincentennial Park, Galway
The garden and the park itself were designed to combine Ireland's history and heritage through representational stone work. The goal of the park, created by Strange Boat Donor Foundation and the Galway City Council, was to provide a peaceful spot that focuses on healing. The circle of stones represents the cycle of nature. The Circle of Life Garden opened in May 2014.
The park also features a heritage walk. This walkway features heritage stones from each of the five continents featured throughout the design of the park and its gardens. The purpose of the heritage walk is to convey a sense of inclusion to all visitors.
Quincentennial Park is open 24 hours.
