Sensory sightseeing of the Oliwa Garden

I See You Foundation organized on 18th June a visit to the Oliwa garden with sensory elements for visually impaired people. We had the pleasure to participate in this event.

The Foundation’s beneficiaries began sensory sightseeing in Gdańsk as part of the “I See the World With Your Eyes” series. One of the first stops on their route was a garden with sensory elements built almost a year ago by DORACO. Currently, the space near the Młyński pond is under the care of the Gdańsk Road and Green Administration.

The Oliwa garden has a variety of sensory stimuli. Among them are: herbal beds, which affect the sense of smell, taste and touch, substrate diversified in texture and colours, as well as elements of small architecture made of wood providing various sensations. During their stay in the Park, the Foundation’s beneficiaries discovered the garden surface and the smells of plants using different senses and listened to various environmental sounds. Representatives of DORACO talked about the idea of the garden. The event was also attended by Ewa Zienkiewicz, a landscape architect who designed the greenery in the garden.

Thank you to the I See You Foundation for the invitation!
