The Legacy Garden, was concealed until the unveiling at the event, and features engraved stainless steel and bronze art installations, memory bricks, indigenous and symbolic landscaping, and benches.

“In addition to the Legacy Garden being a space of healing and reflection for our patients and guests, our donors have the opportunity to support a lasting legacy at the front of the hospital among the therapeutic and calming art installations,” says Montisa Lopez, Vice President of Philanthropy, Arroyo Grande Community Hospital Foundation. “We are pleased and honored to recognize our donors’ contributions and generosity in this serene environment.”

Community members and local businesses will have the opportunity to have their names proudly displayed in the garden when they make contributions to the Legacy Campaign.
