After over six years of fundraising, the residents and family council of the Eagle Park Residential Care Facility in Qualicum Beach opened their new courtyard garden and revealed a flag.

With $56,000 from the Eagle Park auxiliary and $10,000 from the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation, the plaza-style courtyard called the Pink Garden now includes a covered area, fountain, various sitting areas, flowers with accessible walkways for residents’ quality of life and the flag pole that sparked the development of their own flag.

It joins the Front Garden, which opened in 2009, as a means of exercise and enjoyment for residents.

The Qualicum Beach seniors’ facility held a public contest to design them a flag and chose a design by Kelly Ulrich.
