Learning Lawn

A Space for Everyone

The backyard will be transformed into a multipurpose space where patrons can gather, work, study, and play. Access 24/7 Wi-Fi, stroll along the paths, gather and connect with each other while relaxing on a shaded bench, enjoy programs in the pavilion, and interact with the different experiential spaces in the garden.  The sensory rich environment is especially beneficial for mental health and for community members who are neurodivergent or who experience dementia.

Learning through Discovery

Experiential learning opportunities are dispersed throughout the Learning Lawn, making it an exciting and enriching place to visit as well as an ideal field trip destination for schools, daycares, and senior centers. 

Interactive learning spaces within the yard include:

  • Geological Rock Garden
  • Pollinator Garden
  • Pavilion with Amphitheater Area
  • Birdhouse and Nature ID Area
  • Rain Garden Wetland Learning Experience
