Friendship Gardens

More than just plants and trees – a sanctuary of peace

The Friendship Gardens at HHCC were created for the year-round comfort of patients, families, staff and volunteers. The Gardens are a collection of 20 distinct gardens and water features, with over 400 trees, designed and maintained by a group of 20 active volunteers and supported by community donations. The Gardens can be seen from every patient room at the hospital. Specialty handmade art windows were created and installed in the Intensive Care Unit.

In 2018 the Gardens received national accolades, with special mention as part of the Town of Orangeville’s national Communities in Bloom award win.

Through our Freindship Gardens you can also support a student pursuing Environmental Studies at the University of Waterloo or the University of Guelph by donating to a bursary fund. Donations can be made online on the Friendship Gardens website. Tax receipts are available for 100% of donations over $25.
