Louisville Metro Parks and Recreation is creating a “Wish Tree” in Joe Creason Park for visitors to share their future hopes and dreams for themselves, their families and the world around them.
Those wishing to participate are encouraged to travel to Creason Park to visit the tree, a Dogwood tree directly in front of the Metro Parks and Recreation Administration Building, located off Trevilian Way across from the Louisvile Zoo.
Participants can share their wishes on tags that will be provided and tie them to the tree’s branches from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. beginning on Monday, Dec. 7, and continuing through Thursday, December 24. At the close of that time period, the wishes will be collected and sent to the Imagine Peace Tower in Reykjavik, Iceland, as well as shared on social media.
The Imagine Peace Tower is an outdoor work of art conceived by Yoko Ono in honor of her late husband, the musician John Lennon, and symbolizes her continuing campaign for world peace dedicated to his memory.
Additionally, the public is invited to an open house at the Creason Administration Building from 5-8 p.m. on Wednesday, December 16. Light refreshments, including cookies, coffee and cider will be served, and staff will be available at the building to answer questions about the department and assist visitors in attaching their wishes to the tree.
