Franklin Park Conservatory's Children's Garden Breaks Ground!

Columbus, OH


In a special ceremony held in front of the future Children’s Garden site, Bruce Harkey announced the groundbreaking for the Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation Children’s Garden at Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. The event recognized the groundwork laid by FPC’s Master Plan 2.0 and gave special mention to Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation’s commitment to the Garden and to FPC’s mission to connect their community to educational, cultural, and social experiences.

Terra completed the master plan and schematic design for the Children’s Garden before moving on to construction documentation and administration for the project. Cindy had an opportunity to address the crowd as well, to introduce key features of the Garden that will specifically target reconnecting youth to their green world in an effort to combat nature deficit disorder.
