Strawberry Fields

Strawberry Fields (128)

You are now in one of the most emotional and symbolic corners of this vast park; the Strawberry Fields. A teardrop-shaped garden, which pays homage to the great musician, John Lennon, who was murdered in 1980, just across the street, in front of the Dakota building, where he lived.

Nowadays, more than 160 plant species from all over the world grow amidst this bucolic landscape. The trees, shrubs and flower beds you see here were donated by several countries, in order to create together the International Peace Garden.

Although the nickname "International Peace Garden" has become very popular in recent years, the original name of this garden is Strawberry Fields, which was chosen in honour of the song Lennon himself wrote in 1967: Strawberry Fields Forever.

Every year, on 8 December, Beatles lovers come to this garden to mark the anniversary of the singer's death, joining around the mosaic of black and white tiles, on which the word "Imagine" is engraved, probably Lennon's best known and revolutionary song.
