Gatehouse staff and community volunteers planted the garden in an expansive greenspace on the west side of the property at 3101 Lake Shore Blvd. W., west of Kipling Avenue.
A pathway leads to the entrance of the healing garden in which survivors of sexual assault and community members can practise Tai Chi, meditation and quiet contemplation. A labyrinth, a meditative tool, invites a contemplative walk.
The Gatehouse Healing Garden was created under a banner of social and environmental healing and transformation. Artifacts from agencies that provide services to survivors of sexual abuse in the United Kingdom, Ghana, Nigeria and the United States were incorporated into the garden.
