Sacred Heart recently opened the Krewe of Les Petit Enfants Rooftop Healing Garden on the roof of Children’s Hospital.
The garden was designed as a respite area for patients and families to use as a peaceful, stress-free way to enjoy the fresh air and warm sunshine during their stay. The area includes a butterfly garden, quiet retreat areas, and small recreational equipment for small children to use for play.
The garden was made possible from proceeds raised through the 2011 Cordova Mall Ball and the Krewe of Les Petits Enfants, as well as the Purple Heart Kids Gang and numerous other generous community donors.
The second phase of the project includes a complete renovation of the existing children’s playroom and teen game room for patients of all ages to play.
The new outdoor area takes the place of the old playground equipment that was installed when the new hospital was built in 1997.
