The MindWELL Garden Labyrinth, a playground feature that supports youth mental wellness, is open at the Poe Center near WakeMed.
The additions include five sensory stations, a wheelchair accessible trail through a shaded garden, and an activity station with suggestions on self-care and how to promote acts of kindness.
WakeMed’s PlayWELL Park at Poe is the world’s first health education playground. With stations like a Healthy Choices Maze, Nutri-Climb, and most recently, the MindWELL Garden Labyrinth, the one-of-a-kind park offers kids a fun way to learn about health.
Local artist Jane Cheek created a vibrant kinetic sculpture to celebrate the garden’s grand opening on Tuesday, June 27. See the sculpture and the new mental wellness-themed sensory garden for yourself Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
