I thought I would pass this site along to all of you, thought it was such a great idea and so inspiring in the name alone.
I live in Ottawa, Canada and last year they built a Survivors Park in a very well travelled area of the city and it is just so fantastic looking and uplifting thought I would spread the word and maybe this kind of thing could be built in other areas of the world. I know there are parks like it around called other things but this name and the flowers that are permanent structures on the premises just leave such a good message for all passerbys. Survivor's Park says it all. I passed by there the other day on my way to a doctors appointment and just couldn't believe it when I saw it.
Right now there is just a big sign with the parks name on it but next year they will be building Wellspring which is an organization to help with wellness issues surrounding cancer. It is in Toronto Ontario, that's where I believe it started, I visited there years back when I was in treatment in Toronto and know it to be a marvelous resource for information and support so very happy to hear they are opening a Wellspring here soon too.
No doubt Survivors Park will be a great centre for fundraising and support for survivors and their families and friends.
Just thought I would pass the world along and here is the site:
That is the gallery of photos page and again this is just starting up but arent the tulips grand? It's like the sky is the limit for their growth. Spread the word if there is nothing like this in your area would be wonderful to see tulips like that in many cities all over.
