Located inside Brookside Botanical Gardens, this memorial was dedicated October 1, 2004. It honors ten victims of the "DC Beltway Snipers," John Allen Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo, who terrorized the area in October 2002.

One granite block reads:

During the summer and fall in 2002
the senseless violence of two men
caused the deaths of thirteen
innocent people. Although the tragedies
occurred in several parts of the country,
sniper fire in the Washington DC area
abruptly ended the live of ten men
and women. The stones here, engraved
with the names of those ten, bear witness
to the fact that they lived and worked
among us - and they are not forgotten.
Their lives, each unique but all too short,
are forever part of our collective story.
This place also honors the kindness
of so many who supported their families
and whose active compassion still
strengthens the bonds of community.
