Plant a tree to the memory of your loved one that they may always be amongst us as a part of of "our everliving forest", where they continue to live as well as in our memories.
Know that their name remains a living memory both for you and for all who walk our paths and many who have suffered a similar loss that they may continue to live in our hearts and memories.
May those who stop to rest while visiting our park know the beauty of the life of your loved one however short while they enjoy the richness of nature to be found here at ICMP
There is a light that shines beyond all things on earth, beyond us all, beyond the heavens, beyond the highest, the very highest heavens. This is the light that shines in our hearts.

On June 13th. 2010 a dedication ceremony to officially open the "Labyrinth of Life and Love" took place at The International Children's Memorial Place. A labyrinth is an ancient spiritual tool, found in various forms in all religious traditions around the world and throughout history
The pattern of our ICMP “turf” Labyrinth was constructed from a design by Lea Goode-Harris, PhD. It is called the Santa Rosa Labyrinth, and is a seven circuit variation of the medieval labyrinth in the floor of Chartres Cathedral in France (created in about 1200AD)Presently, on PEI, this is the only Labyrinth open to the public. Why walk the labyrinth? A labyrinth can be used for many purposes including prayer and meditation, working through issues, quieting the mind and stress reduction, self-knowledge and insights, celebration of people or events and team building,
Walking the path can provide insights, courage, and understanding in facing life’s challenge. What happens in the labyrinth may be symbolic of what is happening in your real world.
