he folks at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden are gearing up to begin work on a new Children’s Garden in spring 2013. The $6 million garden is being designed by W. Gary Smith, who helped design Delaware’s Winterthur Garden’s Enchanted Woods, a children’s garden based on woodland fairies. “We want to create a children’s garden that you can’t find anywhere else in the world
except at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden,” Smith said in a news release. The Children’s Garden will be anchored by a green-roof amphitheater with a naturalized pond. It will be surrounded by “destinations,” or activity areas that encourage active play and experiential learning. The destinations also will include special features such as a stream, a large aviary, a maze, a cave, a large owl’s nest. Also planned are a play space and a large lawn. LW
