The children’s garden -
university of georgia state botanical garden
Location: Athens, Georgia
Client: State Botanical Garden, University of Georgia
The State Botanical Garden at the University of Georgia has developed both a vision and a mission for the new Children's Garden. The new Children's Garden at the State Botanical Garden replaces the existing parking area and service drives with a wonderful, exciting, and unique new outdoor learning center for children, families and all visitors. The newly transformed 2 acre space will include a beautiful and welcoming arrival area; a new entry plaza with a sculptural and whimsical gateway; a generous new amphitheater and orientation space focused on a colorfully paved map of Georgia and an interactive serpentine Georgia Discovery Wall; a new picnic and gathering space leading to the Shade Garden Entry; and the preserved, wonderfully tree-shaded earth berm that gently encloses the new Children's Garden Proper.
