Butterfly Garden

Butterfly Garden of HOPE

The Butterfly Garden of HOPE is a memorial to those who have died, a symbol of hope to the living and a place of comfort for the grieving.  It is located on the lawn between Onondaga Lake and the Parkway in Liverpool, New York.

The proceeds from the memorial garden help enable HOPE to provide our core services for grieving people free-of-charge. Your contribution will help to continue our mission of helping those who are struggling with the death of a loved one or friend.
