The Children's Museum in Easton - The Wild Place

The Wild Place at the Children's Museum of Easton is every child's fantasy backyard. Mine too. It has a treehouse! And what child wouldn't want a giant white elephant in their backyard. Come on! You can really appreciate this spot sitting inside the secret garden or under the gazebo. Get comfortable in the shade while the kids dig in the sandbox, looking for dinosaur fossils, or drape their treehouse in pretty curtains. It's a great place for kids to explore and use their imaginations.

It reminds me of Hidden Hollow at the Heritage Museum and Gardens in Sandwich, MA.

This learning landscape was designed by a team of players from the museum, the town and members of COGdesign, a community out-reach group that helps organizations with very little funds redesign their green space. Now, there is an idea for an HGTV show.
