ZUCKER HILLSIDE HOSPITAL
Glen Oaks, NY
This Central Park at a renowned psychiatric facility in Glen Oaks, NY provides beautiful views and outdoor experiences for the employees, doctors, outpatients, and family members and friends visiting with patients. The dining terrace is nestled under mature Sycamore trees, the sweeping lawn, and central plaza areas offer every day and event specific spaces for hospital functions. The statue in the center of the plaza, “David’s Knot in Flames,” by Robin Antar, is the centerpiece of the raised planter/seat wall. Inspirational sayings, memorial tributes, and messages of hope are engraved in the pavers that enhance the plaza’s healing properties. We have been involved in making landscape improvements on this site since the early 1960’s and have been helping the hospital grow and improve while providing valuable garden therapy.
