The kid-friendly features are among the most captivating and thoughtful that I've seen (and I've seen dozens of public gardens). This path across the pond is not necessary, strictly speaking. The pond is small. You can walk around it. No, the path is intended, I think, to invite kids to do what they feel drawn to do, namely, get closer to the water. The broad flagstones and narrow gaps between them give young people the confidence that they can venture across on their own. These two are on the third stone and in a new world, surrounded by water, looking at the bottom of the pond, where the wild things are. Who is holding whose hand? Is the boy helping his sister? Are they helping each other? Mom is nearby. Her knees are at bottom right. Beyond her knees are pitcher plants in bloom, carnivores with flowers. See photo 12 for a closer look at the pitcher plants.
