The South Florida Science Museum and Aquarium unveiled plans for this week for expansion and a new outdoor park, which includes a miniature golf course.  Jim Fazio and Gary Nicklaus have designed the outdoor park. Both of the miniature golf course designers are sons of local legends in the golfing industry.

To be named the “Conservation Course”, and projected to open this spring, the miniature golf course “will be used for putting clinics and tournaments, and to teach kids the elementary principles of force, motion and angles”.

Spokespersons with the with the South Florida Science Museum and Aquarium said the course was designed with “science in mind, adding that each hole “will be named and associated with a plant or animal species indigenous to the Everglades habitat.” 

Renovation includes a new $4.9 million east wing.  The new wing has 4,000-square-foot traveling exhibit space, an 8,000-gallon fresh and saltwater aquarium and more!  It opened in June 2013. Last month, the science museum and aquarium center said it plans to open a satellite site for youth camps, classes and other special events focusing on the formative years in the Jupiter area. 

Ideally, the new outdoor park are will connect the South Florida Science Museum and Aquarium to its sister park, the Palm Beach Zoo.  The science center Chief Executive Officer, Lew Crampton, hopes to conjoin the two attractions into one large site. Crampton stated another goal and that was to become one of the Top 10 medium sized science museums in the United States!

Take a visit to the South Florida Science Museum and Aquarium, 4801 Dreher Trail North, West Palm Beach.   “Just like many 55-year-olds you hadn’t seen since they were tiny, our original residents would never recognize our Science Center today,” Crampton said. “And our future has never been brighter.”
