Beyond the Battlefield felt very honored to be given a guided tour of this very memorable and peaceful garden.
The garden which is situated at Brooklyn, 65 Knock Road, Belfast, provides a major tribute to policing in Ireland. It, in particular, marks the service and sacrifice of RUC officers.
The design of the Royal Ulster Constabulary GC Garden represents a move away from the traditional concept of a war memorial, adopting a more contemporary aspect allowing people to take different experience from their visits. It includes an historical walk featuring benches and plaques to create what designers call a “history timeline” marking important dates in the history of the RUC. The needs of the disabled, visually impaired and hard of hearing and other specialist groups are accommodated in the Garden.
