The purpose of the Anoka Kindness Rock Garden is to scatter kindness, positivity and love while connecting us to one another.
Partners in the Community
We have partnered with the students from the Bridges and Work Programs at Anoka Hennepin School District to make a difference in our community together. They come to our event location on a regular basis to help prep rocks to be painted and also prep the rocks to be put out in the garden. A few of them are amazing artists and contribute some fantastic painted rocks to the garden too. This is a HUGE help to us to keep the garden and our events successful. We could not do it without them! Below is a description of two of the groups that we are involved with.
Anoka Halloween Parades 2023
We are excited to be part of the community. Halloween is an exciting time in Anoka.
Keep Spreading Kindness!
We support Anoka Halloween, Inc. and the fun in the community during the month of October. We feel it is important to connect with the people around us in order to help establish relationships to make a difference in the lives of those we meet.
We could not do it without the help of our Rock Painting community and the Minnesota Kindness Alliance.
You may have noticed the additional mural on the South Side of the Steps by the Anoka Kindness Rock Garden. This is an interactive mural that you can take photos by. Pretend you are holding an umbrella, sit on the bench and be part of the scene!
Don't forget to post your photos and tag us. We all love to see happy faces!
A section of the mural directly behind the rock garden has a new look. A huge shout out to Emily Taitt for her contribution to the 1st edition of the Anoka Kindness Rock Garden Mural, your artwork is forever part of our story and our history!
We want to keep the space looking fresh and inviting. Changing a section of the mural yearly adds an element of surprise and keeps the rock garden engaging f
