The Gardenof Reflection is "The Official Pennsylvania Memorial to the Victims of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks". The Garden was created to remember and honor all 2,973 victims killed on September 11, 2001 with emphasis on our Bucks County loved ones. It is situated in Memorial Park in Lower Makefield Township amid the natural beauty of Pennsylvania’s Historical Bucks County farmland.
While TheGarden is an appropriate memorial for fallen heroes and victims of the most significant event that happened in our lifetime, the message of The Garden transcends the horror of September 11, 2001. Out of tragedy comes the determination of the human spirit to heal, rebuild, and find peace. As inscribed at the memorial, "After Darkness...Light", The Garden is truly a place for reflection and a reminder to all that out of tragedy comes hope; out of darkness, light.
The Gardenwas dedicated in September of 2006 coinciding with the fifth anniversary of the attacks.The Garden is maintained and operated entirely through private funding. Since 2002 The Garden of Reflection Committee started a grass roots movement and with the tireless help and support of dedicated volunteers, has run various charitable events to generate sufficient net proceeds to fund the operation of The Garden. The Committee believes the time has come to launch a campaign to create a permanent source of funding for The Garden; it has established an endowment called the "Remembrance Fund". The goal is to raise $2 million to preserve the integrity of this 9-11 Memorial so future generations will have a place to remember and honor those taken from us.
The Garden of Reflection is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. As indicated by the organization’s designation, all donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. Your support will help move us to our goal of a self-sustaining organization and enable The Garden of Reflection 9-11 Memorial to live as the lasting memory it was designed to be.
