A ripple pool at the centre of the World Vision Garden will represent the effect this children’s charity has in the world’s hardest places, with ripples spreading from the middle of the pool to its edge, showing how World Vision’s work with children also helps families, communities and, ultimately, entire countries.

A winding labyrinth path will invite visitors to become part of the ripple where, at the centre, children are at the heart of everything World Vision does. Walls surrounding this conceptual garden and sub-tropical Australian tree ferns offer the pool shelter, representing World Vision's work protecting the world's most vulnerable children.
