Gedling Borough Council commissioned a memorial garden to
be created in the beautiful landscape of Gedling Country Park as a place to
remember the millions of men, women and children that were killed during the
The garden has been designed to be a place of quiet reflection to
remember those that lost their lives and the survivors of the Holocaust. It was
officially opened in March 2023.
The corten steel flame sculpture in the centre of the garden represents eternity through the metaphor of the eternal flame. The sculpture was created as a permanent memorial to honour the victims and survivors.
The memorial sculpture is surrounded by a circular footpath which is lined with cherry trees along with several benches, for visitors to sit in peace and reflect. A variety of native wildflowers have been planted in the garden beds.
You can find the Holocaust memorial near to the memorial garden and tunnel support rings in the centre of the park. Follow the Blue route down from the visitor centre and head to right towards the central pond.
