Hershey Children's Garden
A Place to Grow
by Maureen Heffernan   
 
Since its opening In 1999, the Hershey Children's Garden at Cleveland Botanical Garden has been considered one of the best of the new public children's gardens that are being built throughout the country. Hershey Children's Garden A Place to Grow celebrates the beauty, joy, delight, and horticultural and design excellence found within this special place. 

Maureen Heffernan tells the story of how the garden was developed - from initial idea, to guiding philosophy, to its design, development, and opening day. Readers will gain an understanding of this ambitious garden, whose goal was no less than to create a half-arce urban Eden for children. The stunning color photography of Ian Adams, Janet Century, and Sara Guren brings to life this very active garden in all its creative glory and captures children and visitors of all ages interacting and delighting in the garden. 

Through the example of the Hershey Children's Garden, Heffernan shows that children's gardens across the nation represent a new and exciting type of garden.
