"Praise the Children" Santa Clara Central Park Library Children's Garden
Different materials in lively colors create a focal point for the garden and invite touch and
discovery while providing an area for parents and children to sit and enjoy the surroundings.
Colorful step treads feature hand carved tiles honoring a beloved librarian's quote: "Praise the Children and they will Grow."
Cast glass disks with small bugs amid mosiac passion vine designed to inspire a joy of discovery with pre-literate library patrons.
Installed in 2004 with the help of master tile setter Ralph MacIntosh
