Sod Turning Ceremony with Stella’s Circle & Kings Gate Condominiums

Join Stella’s Circle and Kings Gate Condominiums at the Bonaventure Community Garden for a sod turning ceremony celebrating the redevelopment of the shared urban green space.

When: Thursday, June 3, 2021 at 1:00pm

Where: Bonaventure Community Garden (adjacent to Holy Heart High School parking lot)

The Bonaventure Community Garden has been home to many Stella’s Circle employment and therapeutic programs over the past 5 years, through a wonderful partnership with Kings Gate Condominiums. Now, thanks to our generous donors, the Garden will be redeveloped by Mills & Wright Landscape Architecture with O’Neil’s Construction to create a multi-purpose urban green space for community use.

The Garden will be landscaped and improved so that all Stella’s Circle program participants and community users can fully enjoy the space for gardening, recreation, relaxation, skills development, as well as practice horticultural and other expressive therapies.

The Redevelopment Plan includes:

  • Refurbishing and updating the raised garden beds and accessible beds
  • Leveling the ground in this area to improve accessibility & install a walking track
  • Create a 2nd space for picnic tables and seating for safe outdoor gatherings
  • Extending the walking track to the existing Zen Garden that is close to Brother Rice
