The design concept for the garden came about during a presentation by pupils of Craigie High School. An enhanced provision for visual impairment situated within the school gave the pupils inspiration for a more sensory garden environment. The idea was then developed further: landscape architects have worked in co-operation with Kingspark School to deliver an garden with multiple sensory elements.
The garden design features a range of containers to raise the planting above ground level. The "sensory" aspect features the natural aroma of the plants together with physical elements that will engage the senses of sight, hearing and touch.
The garden was formally opened by pupils from Kingspark school on 22nd of August 2017
