Rainbow Bridge was conceived as not only a place to honor our faithful companions, but also as a place
where the community would come together to further the founders vision of Memory Park.
Thus, many of the plants in the garden are cuttings from the gardens of Rotarians and others in the community.
Colorful bowling balls have been re-purposed as gazing balls. 
Old wood salvaged from the repair and restoration of the historic houses in Fernland Park were used for the entrance overhead signs.
The entrances were built by Rotarians and their families and several Scouts assisted too.
The work crew was led by Rotarians Michael McBride and Wally Lockey.
