A memorial garden renovation in south Scottsdale was commemorated by a ribbon cutting ceremony on April 8.

Scottsdale Mayor Jim Lane, other city officials, and Scottsdale Leadership Board members cut the ribbon for the new garden at Piaute Neighborhood Center, 6535 E. Osborn Road.

The new garden blossoms of fresh landscaping, interactive musical instruments, a small library, new benches, and an artistic pathway with art from the children who attend before and after school programs at the center, according to the release.

Scottsdale Leadership’s Class 33 members recognized the work of students and volunteers made up of city employees, the Piaute Center team, Scottsdale Leadership, local artists and citizens who helped with the project.

Teams from Scottsdale Leadership’s flagship class complete “Pay it Forward Projects” throughout the community, every year, according to the release.
