The Garden of AIDS Community Services
The sunny garden is small, but chock full of color and life.
The iron gate entryway leads to the beautiful garden.
The paths wind through the space allowing the visitor to feel enveloped by the warmth and love the garden radiates. And the Hope Blooms Commemorative Walkway was created to honor or help loved ones fighting AIDS.
The above is a screen shot from the Aids Community Services of Western New York website where they have some very helpful and informative information.
The Hosta are allowed to bloom here and I suspect that is an underlying concept of the entire garden.I really enjoyed this garden and went during Open Gardens prior to Garden Walk Buffalo. I toured the garden alone, but never felt alone. There is something special that makes you meld with the landscape, not feeling like it belongs to others, and as a designer, this makes a garden great. If you ever have the opportunity to come to Buffalo during the yearly Garden Walk, do not miss this special place. It is for more than the garden itself that this place is noteworthy. You cannot help but to enjoy the restorative feeling of hope and joy. They call it “a garden with soul.”
