Strawberry Fields is a living memorial to the world-famous singer, songwriter, and social activist John Lennon (1940-1980). This area of Central Park was named in 1981, and the re-landscaped Strawberry Fields was dedicated in 1985. In 1984, Yoko Ono contributed $500,000 to redesign and renovate Strawberry Fields, and an equivalent amount for an ongoing maintenance endowment. Landscape architect Bruce Kelly designed a meditative Garden of Peace, rich in trees, shrubs and flowers, which was integrated with the historic landscape of Frederick Law Olmsted (1822-1903) and Calvert Vaux (1824-1895). At the western apex of the garden, Neopolitan artisans crafted a circular black and white mosaic emblem into the pavement, containing a starburst pattern and the solitary word, "Imagine," the title of one of Lennon's most famous songs. 150 nations were enlisted to contribute plants to the garden, thus embodying the principle of world peace for which Lennon was such an influential advocate. On October 9, 1985, on the 45th anniversary of Lennon's birth, Strawberry Fields was dedicated, and has become a pilgrimage site for visitors to New York from around the world.
