New Exhibition Opens at Smith-Gilbert Gardens – “TreeMendous Play House”

June 20, 2018

Banner with June 30 dateSmith-Gilbert Gardens is pleased to open a new exhibition for Summer 2018. “TreeMendous Play Houses: Let your imagination climb” features a series of creative, interactive, outdoor play structures, designed and built by area students and professionals. Presented by Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, the exhibition runs from Saturday, June 30, through the end of September, and is included in the price of garden admission.

TreeMendous Play Houses began in January 2018, as a design/build competition. Students and professionals were invited to submit fun outdoor play structure designs showcasing creative design and innovations in sustainability, while establishing an interactive connection with nature.

The structures in the exhibition represent the fruits of these design efforts and many hours volunteered for construction. “We are excited to offer Smith-Gilbert Gardens as a new stage for creativity and thinking green,” said Ann Parsons, Executive Director. “This exhibit will capture the imagination of visitors of all ages!”

Smith-Gilbert Gardens is a 16-acre public botanical garden owned by the City of Kennesaw. Our mission is to serve as a resource for conservation, education and the enjoyment of horticulture, fine arts and historic preservation. Through the TreeMendous Play Houses exhibition, we hope to begin a community conversation about sustainability in a fun, engaging and creative way.
