This unusual memorial to children shows a great value Tyler places on children and their worth. The landscape and statuary are very beautiful and fit the desire of the community to remember these little ones.

Well maintained area which is great for photography. Always a nice place to drop in to have some outdoor time- possibly alone, possibly with some kids playing!

Kids were everywhere! Packed during spring break. So much to do, everyone was getting along, fun for big and little kids. Teens - no so much. Our little ones want to keep going back. Worth it, we grabbed some ice cream and stayed a while.
