NV5 redesigned an existing unused outdoor garden space in Centereach, New York, as an outdoor nature classroom, or “Explorium,” to supplement ongoing youth activities and programs.
The Explorium includes water and messy materials areas, climbing and crawling, a quiet activities area, a shade structure, seating, and a small performance stage — all connected by a brick-paved garden path.
“The Explorium gets kids active and moving to interact with materials outside.” — Sandy Feinberg, Middle Country Public Library Director
“I think it is beautiful. There are so many nice things here.” — Carolyn Stein, Parent
