Northern Palm Beach County’s popular open-air restaurant and retail center, Downtown at the Gardens – best known for its modern shops and trendy eateries – has stepped back in time. Way back.
A pair of wayward dinosaurs has made their way to Downtown Park, grazing amid an abundant supply of tropical trees and plants. The dinosaur duo took a detour on the way the Palm Beach Children’s Hospital at St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach, where they will star in a whimsical dinosaur garden created by Ashem, a landscape-design firm in Delray Beach, to entertain sick boys and girls.
Those with an interest in seeing the prehistoric creatures need not fear, as the two on display resemble the brontosaurus and the triceratops – both herbivores. They soon will move on to their final destination in a flatbed tractor-trailer and will land in their spots on the St. Mary’s campus via a giant crane.
Downtown at the Gardens is in Palm Beach Gardens on Lake Victoria Drive. For information, call 561-340-1600.
