It is described as a large garden, enclosed by tall walls and protected by strong magic. Rare herbs, fruit, and flowers grew in abundance on either side of the sunlit paths. Atop a hill, sits the Fountain of Fair Fortune, a fountain that was said to award good fortune for anyone who bathed in it. Once a year, between sunrise and sunset on the summer solstice, one unfortunate, magical or muggle, was given the chance to fight their way up to the Fountain, and bathe in its waters to receive eternal good fortune.
Along their way up to the top of the hill, the fortunate unfortunate person was forced to give up those things that had been holding them back, such as a keepsake from one who hurt them. By the time they got to the top, the Garden had forced them to leave behind all those things that were holding them back, which then allowed them to move on with their life, thus improving their fortunes.
