On George Harrison‘s 77th birthday, the city of Liverpool announced plans to open a memorial at the woodland garden in honor of the lead guitarist of Beatles.
The Liverpool City Council and the George Harrison Estate will join hands to complete the project, called the George Harrison Woodland Walk, by spring 2021.
The George Harrison Woodland Walk will be located in south Liverpool close to where George was born and grew up. The 12-acre Greenland site opposite Allerton Towers is currently a mixture of mature woodland and meadow.
The Council said the site will be landscaped in order to be accessible, combining garden and woodland with a number of artistic installations inspired by the life and lyrics of “The Quiet Beatle,” as he was famously known.
The city council and the Harrison family urged artists to design new artworks that can be installed in the garden.
They aim to open a “nature classroom” on the site, allowing school children from across the region to spend time learning about nature and the environment.
George’s wife Olivia Harrison said he was an avid gardener who found solace and joy in being in the outdoors.
“I don’t think there is any better way to commemorate him in Liverpool than with a garden which can become a place of tranquility and reflection for everyone,” she added.
