(WorldKings.org) Established in 1973, the fragrance garden is completely wheel-chair accessible. Ethel L. Dupar’s Fragrant Garden is located behind its Seattle facility, and is designed specifically for people who are blind or DeafBlind. With over sixty different fragrant plants that appeal both to the sense of smell and touch, World Records Union (WorldKings) officially declared Fragrance Garden as "World's first fragrant garden designed for the blind".

Based on the world record nomination from America Records Institute (AMRI) and Decision No. WK/USA.INDIA/721/2021/No.177, World Records Union (WorldKings) officially declared Fragrance Gardenis the world's first fragrant garden designed for the blind on July 17, 2021.

Ethel L. Dupar’s Fragrant Garden is located behind our Seattle facility, and is designed specifically for people who are blind or DeafBlind, with over sixty different fragrant plants that appeal both to the sense of smell and touch. Established in 1973, the garden is completely wheel-chair accessible. A nice break from the industrial environment where Lighthouse production is centered, the garden provides a pleasant space for employees to relax. 

The garden presents an enrichment activity for employees who may want to learn more about plants and gardening. Health and wellness benefits of gardens are evident, with studies showing that spending time in a garden can lower blood pressure, boost the immune system, and lower stress levels immediately. For a blind person living in a sighted world, anything that can relieve stress is an obvious benefit.
