“City of Hope Cancer Center, Duarte, CA, has several lovely healing gardens. I work as an administrator in cancer care and was out there for a job interview. The place is very desertlike and so these gardens are absolute oases!”
I recently received this email recommending that City of Hope in Duarte, CA be added to the Gardens page of the Therapeutic Landscapes Network. I visited their website, and sure enough, they do have several lovely gardens: two formal gardens–a rose garden and a Japanese garden–along with three informal spaces (a statue garden and two open park spaces along the front of the campus).
You can click here to read some descriptions of the gardens on their website and to see more images (link to these from the first paragraph). There’s also a lovely image on this page, which I wasn’t allowed to use for this blog but is worth a look by clicking here.
