The Serenity Garden artfully combines indoor comfort with outdoor respite through creative touches, thoughtful materials and careful plant selection. Visited daily by the cancer center’s patients, staff and visitors, the garden provides a welcome space of contemplation and healing. Intimate spaces for both interaction and solitude are created through a variety of seating groups, raised planter benches, and changes in texture and materials. The garden’s focal point is a water wall framed by palm trees, donated in memory of a prominent Yuma Regional Community Cancer Center doctor. Providing a serene sensory experience, the wall displays words of positivity to aid in the healing process and can be seen from all angles of the garden.
