Sunken Sensory Garden Project

The parks gardens provide a serene environment to enjoy. This project will build on this by developing an area of the park,
little used at present, into a small sunken sensory courtyard garden. This garden will be accessible to all, benefitting those with or without disabilities including those who are visually impaired, by providing a calming place of contemplation that stimulates all 5 senses.
Individual and combined sensory opportunities will be provided. The garden will incorporate raised beds bringing plants nearer to view, benefiting those in wheelchairs and unable to bend. Careful planting will provide different colours textures and smells as well as edible plants for tasting. A water feature and wind chimes will enable visitors to touch and hear a variety of sounds. Surrounding seats will allow people to take their time enjoying the space.

Research has shown the therapeutic benefit of the gardening
experience for all including people with disabilities, mental health issues and the elderly including those with dementia. With this in mind we feel that this project, with an estimated cost of £10,000-£12,000, may benefit the whole community
