Sensory Garden plant up
Over the past few months, work has been ongoing in Lower Parc to create a new sensory garden space. The goal was to develop a small area with raised planting, some cover and seating with and an accessible path which would enable local people to come and enjoy the views and plants in this under-used section of the park.
Denbigh in Bloom secured grant funding to develop the space and benefitted from the expertise of Bodfari Environmental for the build and lots of local support from Dementia Friendly Denbigh, to consider the needs of people who might use the space.
Whilst it is open and accessible to everyone, we recognise that residents from nearby residential and sheltered housing or patients at the Infirmary may like to use the space to sit and take in the newly planted borders and planters.
We were so delighted to get 12 pupils from Ysgol Frongoch along to Lower Parc to help with the planting up of two raised planters. Taking advantage of a lovely, mild October day, they soon managed to get both planters filled with wonderful tactile and scented plants, which we will develop as the build is finalised - hopefully not too long now!
If you haven't been to Lower Parc recently, it is well worth a visit. The autumn colour there right now is very special.
