The aim of the garden is to highlight the problem of Overactive Bladder (OAB), which affects over five million adults in the UK. People may suffer silently for many years as they learn to fit their life around OAB, maybe not knowing that help is available.
The colourful maze and paved pathway symbolise uncertainty and the number of different paths that a person with OAB may take. As the focal point of the garden, a five-ton granite sphere sits on a water-cushioned base. Seemingly uncontrollable, like OAB may feel to someone who has the condition, visitors can turn the ball with their own hands and understand what control really means.
