Peace Walk Gardens

The Indianapolis Cultural Trail: A Legacy of Gene & Marilyn Glick will build "luminary gardens" honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Abraham Lincoln as the last two gardens planned in the Glick Peace Walk unveiled in 2010.

The Glick Peace Walk is dedicated to individuals who achieved greatness through peaceful pursuits. The Peace Walk includes 12 distinctive sculptural gardens that celebrate the lives and accomplishments of these luminaries. The gardens enable visitors to gain a deeper understanding of how these inspiring individuals were able to overcome challenges and dedicate their lives to the greater good of society. The first 10 gardens are located on the Cultural Trail on Walnut Street between Meridian Street and Capitol Avenue.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s garden will be located on the southeast corner of Washington Street, Virginia Avenue and Pennsylvania Street. It will be built as part of the Cultural Trail's Southeast Corridor construction scheduled to begin later this spring and completed by the end of the year.
