The garden, which is to be built next to Scarborough Hospital's new Maple ward, will aim to evoke the golden age of travelling to the coast by train, the Scarborough Evening News reported.
According to the newspaper, the design incorporates features that represent the start of the journey in the city as well as "the repetitively rhythmic motion of the train journey" and the beach and seafront at the destination.
Work on the garden, which will also feature old railway posters and a long green bench in reference to the bench at Scarborough's Railway Station, will begin this month.
"The advent of the railway aided the boom of the town of Scarborough, so the idea of travelling from the traditionally smoggy city to the open seaside for the benefits of health is integral to this design," said Ian Costello of Costello Landscaping.
The news comes after Children & Young People Now reported that Greenley's Children's Centre in Milton Keynes, which recently had an official opening for its revamped garden, has been fitted with an undercover outdoor space, a new sandpit, a log cabin and a sensory garden where children can discover different flowers and plants.
