“Today we come to unveil a marker and to establish a Reflection Garden,” said Richard Woodruff, City Manager. So, the citizens who come to the cemetery can have a place relax.”

The project cost nearly $200,000. 

The Kovich Reflection Garden is located in the City Cemetery at the corner of Hargett Street and Johnson Boulevard.
