Julia's Garden and Playground at WWI Memorial Park - North Attleboro


Icon Park Design
Inside WWI Memorial Park (a.k.a Watery Hill) in North Attleboro is Julia's Garden, not what you'd expect inside a park that boasts an awesome petty zoo and great hiking and picnicking. Julia's Garden design is unexpected, but perfectly suited for the park. It's unlike anything we've seen. Basically, it's a little girl's fantastical world, complete with a wishing well, unicorn and butterfly fountain. The landscaping, gardening and sculptures compel you to explore this fairy-tale land, a dream come true for the family of Julia Cekala, who imagined such a lovely spot for their daughter, and made it happen. Julia's Garden Foundation.









Unicorn was crafted by Chris Williams















But it's not all about fairy-tales. No way. 
The garden opens up to a monster slide. 





























Around the corner is a huge sandbox with some shaded picnic tables for parents. There is no shade over the sandbox! Kids are invited to bake to a nice shade of fiery red. 



Stone paths along the way up to the playground.




Big trees provide nice shade and rest at this very popular playground. However that natural cozy landscape design throughout the garden does not continue inside the playground. It doesn't really feel like an extention of the experience, as it's wide open and flat with the usual equipment. Check out this and other natural playspaces
