Children’s Garden Redesigned for Educational Programs and Birthday Parties

The Children’s Garden at The Children’s Museum of the Treasure Coast continues to grow and flourish.  Over the years the Garden Exhibit has received some unique one-of-a-kind installations, including a 12 foot Carrot Rock Climber, a 30 foot Squash Slide, and 15 Foot Bronze Bunny.  The Museum is super excited to share a recent renovation thanks in big part to Legacy Donor David Smythe.  David’s name lives on throughout the entire Children’s Garden.  David was the lead donor for the outdoor educational space, contributing over $200,000 since the Garden’s groundbreaking in 2010. After David’s passing, his son, Tom Smythe, continues the wonderful relationship with The Children’s Museum.  “My dad always believed that children need enriching programs that promote health and wellness.  He believed in the Children’s Museum’s mission and he was honored to lead the charge to see the project thrive and grow, even after his passing” says, Tom Smythe. 

Thanks to the generosity, time, and talent donated by Allgreens Landscaping, ShadeMakers, Bullpen Turf and David Smythe, the Children’s Garden has a new Outdoor Classroom and Event space. The beautiful new space now includes colorful sail shades, vibrant astroturf, and natural grass beds. This newly renovated space will be used to welcome students here for field trips, educational programs, and guest speakers. On weekends the space hosts outdoor Garden Birthday Parties. It’s a great outdoor venue with scenic river views for children’s birthday parties. The event space is now available for birthday parties and small event rentals.

The mission of The Children’s Museum of the Treasure Coast is to offer children and families a place to explore and learn through hands-on activities, educational programs and cultural experiences.
