A Garden for First Touch at St Georges, designed by Patrick Collins, inspired by the strength and determination shown by premature babies and their families on their journeys, which can be long and difficult.

The main feature of the garden is a water course that flows through a stylised valley, representing the journey that premature babies and their families follow. It has a turbulent source but becomes gentler further downstream as the journey progresses.
