The Milton Keynes Rose, located in Campbell Park, is a public space for Milton Keynes where everyone can commemorate, celebrate or remember a special person or event throughout the year. It was commissioned by The Cenotaph Trust and The Parks Trust and with support from Milton Keynes Council. The MK Rose was completed in 2014 and has been used as a place for celebration, commemoration and contemplation for many occasions including annual ceremonies and events for International Women’s Day, Disability Awareness Day and Armistice Day.
Created by internationally renowned artist Gordon Young, the MK Rose features a calendar of days important to the people of Milton Keynes. These are represented by 106 pillars arranged in the geometric design of a flower. So far, 64 pillars have been inscribed (a list of pillars so far can be seen here) and 42 others have been left for future dedications.
