Pink Garden Honors Breast Cancer Survivors

LITTLE ROCK, AR_ A new garden opened up in Little Rock to honor breast cancer survivors.
LITTLE ROCK, AR_ A park across from Mabelvale Elementary opened Saturday. 
It's been three years in the making.
 
The "Pink Garden" is named in honor of breast cancer survivors. It was dedicated Saturday afternoon.
 
The park used to be so overgrown with brush you couldn't even see it. Now, Mabelvale students are able to use the park for their physical education. Board of director for the area, Joan Adcock, is a cancer survivor herself.

"Through the park you see benches of different colors, each color represents a different cancer. So, the whole park brings to mind early detection," Adcock said.

The Arkansas Parks Department also had a big hand in getting the garden made.
