The city of Thousand Oaks is less than two months away from opening a healing garden to honor the victims and survivors of the Borderline shooting that occured last November.

According to ABC 7, the garden will feature 12 symbolic granite stone slab benches, 12 fountain bubbler jets in a pond, 248 paving stones to represent the survivors. 12 lives were taken and 248 survived in tragic shooting incident.

There will also be a plaque that will include the names of those who were killed on Nov. 7, 2018.

"We wanted to make sure we had a memorial park by the anniversary because the city needs a place to come at the one year anniversary, and it will give us our chance to do what we couldn't do that day, and that's to really have a cathartic, meaningful experience," said Thousand Oaks Mayor Rob McCoy.
