- The Art of Life Healing Garden at Woodward Park This three-acre garden is located at Friant and Ft. Washington Roads inside of Woodward Park. The Garden will be an opportunity for cancer survivors and families affected by cancer to partner with local landscapers and artists to reflect their own cancer experiences on a 3-acre “canvas.” We are encouraging cancer survivors to become Team Ambassadors and raise funds, using social media, to sponsor a tree, a park bench seat, a tulip seat or other items in their name. These items will become a permanent part of the garden. Get started now.
