The garden was originally designed as an accessible sensory garden for dementia clients attending the Woodville Centre for day care. It has a circular central feature with brightly coloured spheres and shapes, surrounded by walks with raised beds and covered contemplation areas.
The beds are planted with a variety of shrubs and perennials, providing permanent colour and shape which is enhanced with annual planting. There are mixed borders surrounding the building which frame the sensory area. A lawn area has been planted with flowering trees and has benches to allow clients to sit and enjoy the garden spectacle.
The garden offers easy access for all, is fully secure and we hold activities and garden groups in the summer months. It enables clients to socialise in safe and relaxing open-air surroundings.
