Children’s Hospital progress may mark end for Prouty Garden
Few people know about the Prouty Garden, owned by Children’s, endowed by the late writer Olive Prouty, and designed by the famed Olmsted Brothers firm. Among those who do, there may be no more meaningful place in Boston. Heart-breakingly young patients gulp the fresh air. Staff members take breaks from the relentless pressures of their jobs. Harried, worried parents seek tranquility and clarity amid the flowers and lawns. And in the name of progress, this garden may come to an end.
