PLAYGARDEN is being built as a participatory multigenerational outdoor experience for families with children of all ages. Currently in the design phase, the garden will include elements that echo the property’s architectural features and interior spaces and the historic gardens on the estate.

“The Stan Hywet project has given us another unique opportunity to design a garden specifically for children’s delight and family interaction,” says Jonas Pattie, executive vice president of The Pattie Group. “The Stan Hywet leadership team’s commitment to making this project truly special and reflective of the rich and storied history is inspiring. We are honored to collaborate with Stan Hywet to create a new garden experience for families to enjoy for generations to come. This important work magically melts the present with the past which is so meticulously preserved by Stan Hywet.”
