The Children's Garden


about the children's garden

Beyond the saw palmetto tunnel at the Vicky C. and David Byron Smith Children's Garden lies a carefree world full of flowers, vegetables, butterflies, tree houses and babbling streams. Your journey into this interactive learning environment begins in the Entry Court, where you can not only orient yourself with the in-ground compass rose, but also cool off, splash, and play in the jets of water spraying from the boulders around the court.
