The Nimick Family Therapeutic Garden
This garden will be rooted in The Children's Institute's commitment to nourish the needs of our children, their families and our staff. Not only will it provide a therapeutic environment for our amazing kids, but it will also be a place where the community will be welcome to enjoy the meandering walkways, relaxing fountain, sunflower pavilion and lush scenery.
Until you can visit in person, take an amazing photographic stroll through our beautiful new Nimick Family Therapeutic Garden.

On Thursday, April 22, 2010, The Children's Institute hosted a private groundbreaking for friends and family of Florence and Tommy Nimick. This event marked the official start of the garden.
