PW Hospital, Scouts unveil Tranquility Garden

Prince William Hospital administrators, staff and Manassas Scout Troop #670 gathered recently to unveil an outdoor oasis intended to provide a tranquil environment for behavioral health patients.
The garden provides a secure outdoor space for enhanced therapy activities to inspire healing, including gardening, relaxation through soothing colors and beauty of the garden, and physical exercise.
Named Tranquility Garden by staff, the 3,200-square-foot garden is landscaped with greenery and flowers, a pathway for strolling, raised garden planters, a fish pond and a colorful mural depicting a beach scene.
Designed based on research that physical environments can have multiple psychological, behavioral, social and biological influences on health, the collaborative community effort involved Manassas Scout Troop #670 and mural artist Olivia Smith.
