Toyota Children's Learning Garden

Michael Van Valkenburgh just saw another project opened in New York City. The Toyota Children's Learning Garden is not a playground or arena for imagination so much as it is designed to help children learn about plants.
There doesn’t seem to be any place for children to climb, he was told. “It’s a garden for learning about plants, not a playground,” he said.
Don't worry, they still made sure that the structures were sturdy enough to handle New York's roughest. And MVV has done children's work before, so we'll trust he knows what they like. I know our boys loved his sliding board in Teardrop Park.
