ISL was retained by the Province of Alberta to design the memorial garden, which included a plaza and seating area, a stone garden wall and extensive planting. The design was a collaboration with the Hole family, Workun Garrick Architects and the Province of Alberta.
The official sod turning took place on September 16, 2005, and construction of the concrete paths, stonework and ironwork took place that same fall. Planting was completed in June 2006. The grand opening was held on July 3, 2006.
