'Tranquility Garden' Being Created At Local Park


A tranquility garden is being created at Scioto Grove Metro Park near Columbus in memory of a slain Ohio State University student whose body was found there. 

The garden will include a Celtic symbol for love, large swings and more than one thousand plants to honor 21-year-old Reagan Tokes. Her body was found in the park in February 2017. Brian Golsby was sentenced to multiple life sentences for her murder in March. Assistant park manager Chris DelGrosso says the park will look like stained glass when flowers bloom next spring. Tokes' mother, Lisa McCrary-Tokes, says she wanted to "remove the darkness and ugliness" within the park. She says she imagines people finding peace there in the future.
