Garden Developments


Sensory Garden

Coming soon in Spring 2022

A Sensory Garden is being built by volunteers and staff at Parklea Branching Out situated at the bottom end of the facility, near our pond area.

Our Sensory Garden stimulates 5 senses through services, objects and plants with it being a benefit to all.

We ask the people in Parklea questions from the questionnaire about the sensory garden and what it should contain.

The elements to be included will be smooth pathways to be accessible for wheelchair users and other Clients. The sensory walk will have coloured lights, stained glass, seating and plants to connect with the five senses of smell, touch, sight, taste and sound.

We want people to enjoy the peaceful and calm atmosphere that we are looking to create.

We would look to be completing this piece of work early 2022.
