May 2013- Cre8Play, a Minneapolis based company dedicated to creating unique play environments will unveil a new rooftop garden and playground design and build project at St. Paul Children’s Hospital with Grand Opening set for May 22nd. The fourth floor rooftop project has been dedicated to this healing green space for play, social support and quiet reflection that leads to a sense of normalcy for patients and families under stress. Over a decade of research has shown healing gardens and play areas in healthcare facilities can decrease stress and improve health outcomes.
Cre8Play is now designing peaceful gardens and play environments which incorporate the right balance of critical healing elements including native wildlife, flowers, water features and music.
St. Paul Children’s Hospital is currently looking for flower donations to fill the planters. For more information on the project please visit www.cre8play.com.
