This began when four businessmen wanted the city of Dallas to be known not only for its economic accomplishments, but also for the enduring heart of its citizens. This meditative urban garden sits 15 feet below ground level and expressions of thanksgiving are found all around the square. The chapel of thanksgiving is the spiritual center of the square.The Glory Window contains one of the largest horizontally mounted stained glass windows in the world.
JFK died just 200 yards from this site on november 22 1963. The design is an empty tomb symbolizing Kennedy’s free spirit. Each column ends in a light fixture. At night, the light creates the illusion that the structure is supported by light itself. The memorial stands as a tribute to the joy and excitement of his life.
