'Come Healing Gardens'
'Passing Through Gardens'
'Swimming Moon Gardens'
'Leonard Cohen Memorial Garden'
not the greatest ideas but curious if others have some...I just looked at the Lissadell House site on Facebook and they have some good ones. An especially beautiful one is Poet's Corner.

How about

Unified Hearts Park

or..... ;-)
Tea and Oranges Park
Graceful and Green Park



but I love Green Lilac Park too.
Light breaks where no sun shines;
Where no sea runs, the waters of the heart
Push in their tides....

in one of leonard's songs he sings 'myself, i long for love and light', so why not give him just that: a garden of love and light.

I like this one, too. "A Garden of Love and Light." It will be hard for them to pick the best name for it.

Some good answers!

What about “The Leaf Of Life Garden” or “Leaves Of Life Garden” relating to a verse from the song Sisters Of Mercy.

“If your life is a leaf that the seasons tear off and condemn
they will bind you with love that is graceful and green as a stem.”

Also taking note of the fact that the tree planted for Leonard is a Canadian maple which seasonally replaces its leaves in accordance with the eternal cycle of life itself.

Maybe the recognizable recitation “A Thousand Kisses Deep”, which are symbolically below in the branching roots of the tree.

Some different simple thoughts: “Cohen’s Corner” or Leonard’s Place” or Leonard’s Way”.

Back at you, Darling.
You know, I still have long red hair and I can drive a tractor.
But no way am I moving to Norway. You'll need to come here.
