MARTIN COUNTY -

Inspired by a passion to enhance the lives of children, county resident David Smythe donated $43,000 to the Children's Museum of the Treasure Coast this spring.

The donation will help build the Native American healing garden, workshop and education pavilion and plaza area.

Mr. Smythe, who has donated to organizations such as Martin Memorial Health System and Molly's House, was walking through Indian Riverside Park when he became interested in bringing an interactive garden to life.

"I'm for children, I'm happy helping children," said Mr. Smythe. "I feel how good it really feels to help others."

The garden, in addition to the Martin County Junior League's pizza garden, will include a fire pit and amphitheater area, butterfly garden and a carrot-shaped play climber.

The museum hopes to break ground on the additional pieces of the garden within the next month.

The museum offers children and families a place to explore and learn through hands-on and interactive activities. It is located at Indian Riverside Park in Jensen Beach and is open seven days a week.
