<p>Owned, operated and designed by Sarasota artist and author Joan Marie Conclon ("Snuffy the Beautiful Dragon"), the Sarasota Children's Garden is a sanctuary for&nbsp;imagination&nbsp;and play that encourages kids to spend time in nature. The two-acre complex features a maze, an explorable pirate ship overlooking a koi pond, a climbable tree fort and a charming fairy garden that's perfect for tea parties.<br /><br />Conclon has created a welcoming&nbsp;environment that is "not a drop-off zone," she says. Although there is a drop-off program available for two hours per day during school, parents are&nbsp;encouraged&nbsp;to stay and play in "the land of Odd." The garden is available for birthday parties and special events, and guests are&nbsp;encouraged&nbsp;to bring their own food and snacks.</p>
