Sensory Garden

Celebrated it's 20th Anniversary

On June 8, 1998 the Garden Club of DeLand held a dedication ceremony for the newly created gift to our City the Sensory Garden.

The Sensory Garden was designed for people to explore and enjoy with all senses (touch, taste, smell, sight and sound) located in Bill Dreggors Park-230 North Stone Street, DeLand, Fl. on the site of the historic Old DeLand Memorial Hospital, which is now a museum about the hospital. The Park also includes a playground and a hiking trail, as well as a lovely little butterfly garden that includes a self-guided tour. The sensory components of the garden were included for the visually and physically challenged. Upon the Sensory Garden’s completion the Garden Club of DeLand dedicated the garden on June 8, 1998. Members of the garden club regularly maintain the Sensory Garden, as an ongoing project.

Penny Pines Project:

The Garden Club of DeLand joins with the National Garden Club and the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs by collecting money to help with the reforestation/forest education program.  Just your pennies will help reforestation in Florida’s most damaged National and State Forests.  For just $68, your District, Club and Circle can help to purchase and plant trees in Osceola National and John Bethea State Forest which have had over 11,000 acres destroyed by the Okefenokee fires in 2010 and 2011.  The US Forest Service is trying to reforest 250 to 500 acres per year to replace trees destroyed in these fires.

The Garden Club of DeLand is a member of National Garden Clubs. Who is National Garden Clubs? This video showcases many of their programs and activities.  Join a NGC garden club today and be part of something bigger! Watch this video and learn about the value of being a Garden Club Member.
