Phase 1 Complete, On to Phase 2

In 2021, we were able to finish “Phase 1” of the Rose Garden – just in time for the 20 th anniversary of 9/11. It was a very special “unveiling,” with many hundreds of visitors and universal acclaim for the quiet beauty of the garden and its function as a “living memorial” to the heroes of Flight 93. This is what the Rose Garden looked like in June 2021:

pre-phase-1

We made tremendous progress in the 4 short months leading up to 9/11, and at the end of Phase 1 there were four main features to the Rose Garden:

  • The Compass Rose (with its points oriented north, south, east, and west – visible from 30,000 feet – and large rocks engraved with the names of each of the Heroes of Flight 93)
  • The Cross (the first memorial erected at the crash site, and since moved to the Rose Garden)
  • Ryan’s Trail (named for Ryan Cenk, whose Eagle Scout project placed benches around the ½-mile perimeter of the Rose Garden property)
  • The Families’ Rock (acknowledging the donation of the property by the Families of Flight 93)

Phase 2

We are commencing “Phase 2” of the development of the Rose Garden. In addition to maintaining all that we accomplished in 2021, we’re making plans for numerous enhancements and additions, including:

  • Improvements to walking trails to accommodate foot traffic, wheelchairs, and handicapped-driven vehicles
  • The planting of wildflowers in the field behind the Compass Rose
  • The leveling and seeding of our “stage” area, in preparation for onsite events beginning this summer
  • The creation of a small picnic grove
  • The installation of a PA system
