David Simpson Hospice House Vista Walk and Tribute Gardens

GardenWalk Neighborhood: 

The grounds of David Simpson Hospice House are a place of solace and reflection. More than a dozen gardens, named in tribute of friends of Hospice of the Western Reserve and in memory of loved ones, are open to all year-round. Each garden is as unique as the individual, couple or family for whom it is named. Most were designed with significant input from the donors. More than 2,000 inscribed tributes form the garden walkways, each one a reflection of a special relationship.

The landscape surrounding David Simpson Hospice House is organic yet curated. Naturalized with pockets of formality. Under the willow, a Zen garden that features a hewn stone bubbler draws visitors to the west-end. A tiny garden of carefully placed, moss-covered boulders is tucked into the east walk. Show piece gardens call for longer exploration. The Angela and James Hambrick Arbor Garden is a dry garden designed to invite meditation and to withstand the harshest lake wind. Koi dart around pink and white waterlilies in the Molly Goodwin Garden and visitors can reflect in solitude in the sunken, lakeside Donald L. & Agnes Ward Hamilton Memorial Garden.

Enjoy your visit to our Vista Walk and Tribute Gardens. Please be respectful of the memories of those who are honored here and of the patients and families who are staying in Hospice House.
