The entrance is located across from the Dakota Building, where Lennon lived during his last years. At the entrance to his house, he was murdered in 1980 by a crazy fan.
At the corner, a memorial was put up by Lennon's widow, Yoko. A triangular piece of land, both sides pointing to both sides of the park. At the top, you will find the mosaic floor with the word "Imagine" in the center, like Lennon's great song, in which, ironically, he suggested imagining a world without wars and violence.
Around the monument, you can sit on benches put here, for giving visitors a moment of peace and thought about the hero to so many music fans. Yoko Ono donated over one million dollars for the design of the monument, and its maintenance and some see her car stop by nearby.
On the anniversary of the murder of Lennon, a crowd gathers of supporters and fans, and the artist's memory is kept. They stay in the "Strawberry Field" until the small hours of the night, and pay their respects. On these days you will find flowers, candles, and objects that visitors leave behind.
