With the support of the entire Latvian nation the Garden of Destiny is becoming a reality on an island in Koknese on the Daugava. It is a place where the past, the present and the future of the people as well as the nation merge...merge to give solace to the past, strength to the present and inspiration to follow your dream in the future. Just as generations left the Statue of Freedom to us, we will leave the Garden of Destiny as our legacy.
Shunmyo Masuno – a landscape artist from Japan – has visualized the Garden of Destiny. His work was selected as the best of 207 projects by an international jury. Architects Andris Kronbergs and Raimonds Saulitis along with „Design bureau ARHIS”, you, your friends and relatives and the people of Latvia are all helping to make this dream a reality.
Work began in 2008 with creation of the apple tree lane. The road around the perimeter of the island was made in 2009 thanks to donations. The central feature of the Garden of Destiny, the amphitheater, was begun in 2010 and continued in 2011 and 2013. The main work for 2012 is the building of view terrace. Each and every one of us has the opportunity to become a part of the Garden of Destiny and help in its realization!
