Named after late philanthropist and horticulturalist Rachel “Bunny” Lambert Mellon, our Healing Garden is dedicated to the First Ladies of the United States in honor of their longstanding support to Children’s National and the Washington, D.C., community. This beautiful outdoor area gives families dealing with health challenges a peaceful space to connect with nature and renew their spirits.

Children with serious illnesses often have very limited access to nature and miss feeling the warmth of the sun. Our spacious 7,200-square-foot rooftop garden advances our commitment to providing the best possible care and experience to each patient. You can view photos of the garden here and a time-lapse video of its construction.
