I was unaware that Woodward Park had a certain area that was designed for the the purpose of creating awareness for cancer survivors known as the Art of Life Healing Gardens. Learning about how the area came to be was very interesting and the purpose for it is amazing. Being there you get a sense of calming and relaxation, which I believe is the purpose of the gardens. Its family and children oriented and just a great place to be. What I found interesting was that they have this initiative called “Paint it Forward” where they get people from schools and the community and paint tiles that they put on the benches that they have at the park. I think it was interesting and cool how people leave their mark behind in a sense and share their experience.
