The Gardens

Last year, we were delighted to win GOLD award at the Yorkshire in Bloom ceremony for the second year running. In 2019, The beautiful gardens also won joint first in the Charitable Establishments category along with Barnsley Hospice.

The gardens provide for patients and families to spend time in, making memories and relaxing with loved ones.

The In-Patient Unit includes a private terrace for each room, that overlooks the gardens and many find comfort in sitting out and taking in the scenery.

Our Volunteer Gardeners have been working hard over the last few months to bring the gardens back to life following lockdown, and developing new areas such as The Wildflower Lawn, Allotment and Chef's Garden.


National Garden Scheme

The National Garden Scheme gives visitors unique access to private gardens across the country, helping to raise thousands each year for local charities like The Kirkwood. We are delighted to be featured in the National Garden Scheme book for the first time.
