New Addition to The Sensory Arts Garden
The Sensory Arts Garden has a beautiful new feature—the water wall! The addition, completed in early March, was funded by a group of generous ladies who attended Liezl’s Tea Party. The water wall is a colorful and captivating feature of the Sensory Arts Garden and the kids are loving it!
“The water wall is perfect for all the senses. It is so tranquil and relaxing. Being here really helps you pause,” Stacie Routt, Executive Director of The Learning Center said.
The Sensory Arts Garden and Pavilion is a 13,000-square foot therapeutic and educational destination for children and adults, providing a meaningful experience through the exploration of nature and stimulation of the senses. Motor, cognitive, sensory and social skills are stimulated through the variety of plantings, hardscape and water features.
“The water wall calms the kids, it draws the kids in. It’s a wonderful sensory activity. Even the non-verbal kids can show their feelings on how much they love the water wall.” – Tracy, a teacher at The Learning Center.
“I could take a shower with this!” – A student at The Learning Center.
