Description EN

The Healing Garden at Baltimore Washington Medical Center is a serene and beautifully landscaped spot that patients, visitors and employees enjoy year-round.

Located behind the Tate Cancer Center, the 8,000sf garden features brilliant flowers, several hillside gardens, a winding stream, benches and a rectangular reflecting pool. The garden walkway also features hundreds of bricks, inscribed with names of friends and loved ones.

The Garden in Winter

  "I hope my grandma is ok. This garden makes me think of heaven." -Anonymous Healing Garden Journal Entry

The garden provides a convenient place for patients and their families to relax, meditate or just take a break from treatment. Visitors enjoy strolling through, admiring the landscaping, looking for a friend or family member's name on one of the inscribed bricks, sitting on a garden bench, and writing thoughts into a community journal, while enjoying the healing qualities of the prevalent water features within the space.

The Infusion Therapy rooms overlook the healing garden through expansive windows, allowing patients indoors to still enjoy the restorative qualities of the garden.

There is currently ongoing work near next to the garden to add another Infustion Therapy room.  Hopefully, you'll be able to visit when work is not in progress.

There is a Log Password for this cache.  When sitting on the bench, look to your right.  You'll see a glass, exit door.  Count the number of window panes between the top of the door and the roof.  Enter your answer in numeric form (not spelled out).  

Please don't rush in and out of here.  Take some time to enjoy this space and, of course, be respectful of those any patients or visitors who may be here.

There is parking very close to the garden, along the side of the building.

 This bench and journal was placed as part of the Sacred Spaces program of the TKF Foundation, which has helped develop such places in the Baltimore, Washington and Annapolis areas.
