Parkview Contemplative Garden

Fort Wayne, Indiana

Continuing the success of the Parkview Cancer Institute, Parkview Health System selected JPR to lead the site design efforts for the development of a contemplative garden space.

Parkview Health wanted to provide a tranquil space that allowed patients, family members, and workers an opportunity for quiet contemplation and stress release. Located directly outside of the Cancer Institute, the challenge of this space was to avoid a somber feeling. Instead, the design team wanted to invoke thoughts of encouragement and support on one’s journey to recovery.

Key Features:

• Water fountain

• Seat wall and overhead trellis

• Gathering space

• Custom words of encouragement inlaid into the pavement
