Morgan Stanley Garden
In 2016, a very special garden was opened at Great Ormond Street Hospital. The Morgan Stanley Garden provides a quiet, reflective space for families and patients away from the wards and the bustle of our central London location.
The garden can be accessed through Medical Illustrations on Level 2 of the Southwood Building, by the school. The garden is overlooked by Hedgehog Ward.
Chris Beardshaw, the garden’s designer, said: "This project is one of the most significant and poignant gardens of my career and I feel fortunate to be able to partner with Morgan Stanley in creating what will be a lasting legacy for parents and families of the children who will be treated at GOSH now and in the future. I hope the garden will provide a reflective and restorative space for those who use it and provide a nurturing world away from its urban surroundings."
Coming soon – Disney garden
In partnership with The Walt Disney Company, an additional outdoor space will be opening in 2018. The area will be a fun space for children to explore, right next to The Lagoon.
Less than a five-minute walk from the Octav Botnar Wing is Coram’s Fields, a large public play area for children under 16 years old. Adults can only enter the area when accompanied by a child. It is open every day from 9am until dusk.
Coram’s Fields has lots of play equipment, farm animals, and activities during school holidays. Please check with a member of child’s medical team whether it is advisable for your child to visit the areas with livestock.
