Healing gardens

At the MUHC, we feel that gardens are essential to creating a truly healing environment. They act as an oasis for patients, families, personnel and members of the community to enjoy fresh air and find tranquility

  • The Glen site is entirely landscaped, with green space making up one third of the 43 acre site. On the North side, people can  enjoy a large plaza adorned with art installations, walking paths, gardens, and seating areas. The Cedars Cancer Centre has its own healing garden and the Montreal Children’s Hospital has an outdoor playground
  • Lachine Hospital maintains well-kept gardens on their grounds, open to everyone to use and enjoy
  • Nestled in the foothills of Mount Royal, the Montreal General Hospital and Montreal Neurological Hospital are surrounded by forests and green space
