The Imagine-Nation Garden will be located in Lakeside Park in Pawling, New York. Lakeside was a very special place for Shane. He played soccer there, and went to summer camp for 3 years. 

The Imagine-Nation Garden will  NOT be a shrine. Instead, it will be a place for people to go if they ever feel alone, or just want to be alone. The garden will not only be whimsical and colorful, but inspirational messages will be located throughout the garden. The paths will be lined with the Kindness Stones created by people from all over the world. This will be a work in progress, but will surely be a place for people to know that they are never alone.

If you are an organization that would be interested in sponsoring a particular area of the garden, we would welcome that! 

We will also be raising money to create a bronze statue and plaque at the entrance to the garden.
