The Sensory Garden is located next to the Mansion in Buile Hill Park. It was created in 1963, as a garden for the blind. It's changed from the original design (above) and now has 4 raised beds and lawn. There is also a back wall covered in ivy and some of the lawn in front of the gates has become flower beds.
Unfortunately the garden was left unattended for many years until in 2019 BHMA held an event to tidy up the garden and plant some bulbs. Since then many volunteers have worked in the garden to add plants and now the garden is looking much better.
BHMA now have a Volunteer (Pete Simms) who is helping us to try and make the garden into a proper Sensory Garden again. We will be holding regular garden sessions throughout the Summer to maintain and improve the garden.
We are having regular sessions on Sunday mornings throughout the Summer and everyone is welcome.
If you would like to get involved in Volunteering in the Sensory Garden then please get in touch. The link below will take you to our Volunteers page. Thank you.
If anyone would like to help smash last year's total votes and vote for us, that would be fantastic and help us continue with all our community projects.
We want to restore the 'garden for blind' back into a sensory garden to compliment the Mansion restoration and to enable community sessions.
