The Walton Gardens
THE WALTON SCULPTURE GARDEN
The Hugh McLeod Garden
The newly installed Walton sculpture garden is one of the three gardens funded by the Walton Foundation. The twenty-one by forty-three-foot open experimentation garden is designed for students' hands-on exploration of math concepts, vertically integrating across subject areas and facilitating myriad lesson plans. These interactive sculptures, crafted from recycled metal, incorporating pulleys, pendulums, ramps, levers, gyroscopes and pedestals for student art, all built on a concrete layout of the golden rectangle, enable our teachers' development and delivery of innovative lessons and experiments, facilitating student explorations of mathematical principles, as they relate to the fields of art, architecture, science, biology, physics, engineering and technology.
The Walton Gardens Project exemplifies the limitless possibilities that can be achieved when the passion and skills of many people are dedicated to enhancing the learning environment of our school. The Walton Foundation welcomes the opportunity to partner with this team of visionary volunteers, teachers, administrators, students, businesses and community leaders to make The Walton Gardens a reality.
. The Hugh Mcleod Memorial Garden, located near the Dining Courtyard, and the Eastern Entrance to the building,provides a tranquil respite for the entire Walton Community while offering opportunities to explore and apply interdisciplinary concepts. Elements in this garden appeal to all the senses. .
