Ninewells Garden Room

The Ninewells greening project has been set up demonstrate how to create a green, health promoting hospital.

This ground breaking project shows that with good design and access improvements, hospital grounds can be used by everyone for physical activity, recreation, recuperation, viewing nature or simply to spend time relaxing or convalescing.

Funding from Cash4Communities, Forestry Commission Scotland and the Green Exercise Partnership has allowed the latest project vision to become a reality

A 'garden room', situated in the community garden will be developed to provide a sheltered space, a place to work when the weather is bad, a communal space for volunteers to meet and visit, somewhere for workshops, and an accessible space where frail patients or people with mobility issues can sit and enjoy views of the garden and woodland.
