Creating a Space for Celebration, Healing, and Hope

A Space for Celebration

The master plan for the park brings improved access to the Swamp Rabbit Trail and opens up the area across the Reedy River for new sculpture and public gathering spaces. The natural setting will serve to remind us of the fragility and sacredness of life.

A Space for Healing

The Cancer Survivors Park encourages visitors to enhance the healing process by focusing on what is really important in their lives. Our community has embraced this healing spirit by coming together in unique ways to create a place of rejuvenation.

A Space for Hope

Living with cancer involves more than battling the disease; we must also deal with fear, uncertainty, and feelings of helplessness. The park is designed to provide hope and inspiration to anyone touched by cancer -- survivors, caregivers, or those who have lost loved ones.

"Gardens reflect life. They are ever-changing and ever-renewing. They often times present tremendous challenges and don't turn out exactly as planned, but with persistence, the rewards are worth the efforts. There is a rhythm to a garden - a continuity that offers hope and a sense of peace. A stroll through a garden invigorates the spirit and reanchors us within the cycles of life."
