Myriad Gardens’ Children’s Garden closing September 23 for Re-Installation of GROW Letters

Myriad Gardens’ Children’s Garden closing September 23 for Re-Installation of GROW Letters

The much loved “GROW” letters are coming back to the Children’s Garden in September. Thanks to a major gift from the Southwest Chapter of the Thunderbird Telecom Pioneers, the same group of wonderful people who made the adaptive play equipment possible, these whimsical letters have been refurbished and look as good as new. You can look for them on the north side of the maze near our little crooked house in time for Pumpkinville, which opens October 11. As a longtime favorite among the thousands of children and their families, the “GROW” letters are a fun and unique obstacle for children to climb and make a perfect backdrop for photos and portraits. They reflect the natural surroundings of the Gardens and support our mission of connecting people with nature and encouraging all to grow in harmony with our environment.

The GROW letters were removed last year to make way for adaptable playground equipment.
