When you enter The City of Tega Cay, one of the first things you see is a welcome to Tega Cay sign on the left side of Tega Cay Drive.? Soon you’ll also see the Living Memorial Gardens.? A sign marking and announcing the Living Memorial Gardens was posted last week at the entrance of Lakeshore subdivision on Shoreline Parkway.
Tega Cay’s Beautification Committee has planned and is promoting the new city garden. The Living Memorial Gardens will include sidewalks and paths that meander through a variety of picturesque gardens, ornamental trees, shrubs, grasses and structures. Boulders, twenty benches and three bench swings will dot the grounds.
The sidewalks will be lined with approximately 1,500 laser inscribed pavers, which will memorialize people or organizations chosen by their donators. The individual gardens, trees, benches, and bench swings are available for donators to display a bronze plaque or laser inscribed bricks.
The Beautification Committee is soliciting sponsorships and the opportunity to purchase garden elements like laser inscribed bricks, benches with plaques, trees etc. See the brochure and website for more details.
A ground breaking ceremony is planned to kick off Memorial Day weekend Friday May 27, 2011.
