The  city of Medford is set to become the site of a $1 million peace garden honoring Boston Marathon bombing victim Krystle Campbell and others killed and wounded when two explosions went off near the finish line.

The 29-year-old Campbell grew up in Medford. She and two others were killed in the April 15 explosions that also wounded 260 others. Authorities believe the suspected bombers also fatally shot MIT police officer Sean Collier hours after investigators published their photos.

As the anniversary of the bombings approaches, The Boston Globe  reported Friday that Campbell's father and Medford officials announced plans to build the peace memorial. It will feature five fountains, including three for those killed at the marathon and a fourth for Collier. The fifth fountain will honor those injured in the explosions.
