About the Serenity Garden

The Serenity Garden is a cancer awareness garden built in Waynesboro Virginia’s Ridgeview Park. The Garden provides a tangible special place for people to reflect on the courage, dignity, and hope of those who have overcome this disease and those who have fought it. It is a place to celebrate the end of treatments and a place to bring awareness to the continuing efforts to cure cancer. This Garden is on an approximately one acre knoll at the entrance to Ridgeview Park off Northgate Avenue.

A walkway leads you through an array of low growing shrubs, brightly colored flowers, all full of green leaves in the summer and beautiful color in the fall. Special benches line the walkways and are also placed throughout the Garden for your convenience. “The People’s Bell” can be rung three times to say “My treatments are done, my course is run and I am on my way.”

A special walkway leads to South River for people who want to sit and listen to the quiet ripple of the flowing water. Numerous plaques displayed in and around the Garden explain the deep commitment from businesses, organizations, and individuals who believe in the fight against cancer.

Twice a year, in the Spring and Fall, a brick dedication service is held to recognize the contribution of bricks since the last dedication. All persons who provide bricks will receive a special invitation to attend this ceremony.

Our Mission

To provide and maintain a public garden where persons can come to reflect on the impact of cancer and other illnesses within our community, to remember those who have lost their battles, and to rejoice with those who have won their battles. Serenity Garden provides the setting for the public to reflect on the courage, dignity, and hope of anyone dealing with a serious illness.
