Monarch Sculpture Coming Soon to Downtown Winter Garden

Downtown Winter Garden is a remarkably charming town and every year it seems to get better and better. 2021 is no different. There is a lot to look forward to this year, especially the Monarch Project in Winter Garden.

Early in 2021, there will be a new park in Downtown Winter Garden located between The Splash Pad and The Plant Street Exchange. This new park will be home to trees, benches, open lawn space, and Winter Gardens’ first outdoor sculpture.

This sculpture is a copper-clad Monarch butterfly that will stand about 10 feet tall with a wingspan of about 8 feet. The sculpture will be ascending from a butterfly pollinator garden in the new park.

The Bloom & Grow Society and Don Reynolds are to thank for this wonderful work of art and for bringing the Monarch Project to life in Winter Garden. Don Reynolds is a very accomplished artist and sculptor with work all around Central Florida. You can find more information about the artist, Don Reynolds here.

The Women of The Bloom & Grow Society have been a driving force in the West Orange County area since the club’s inception in 1997. They are responsible for Winter Gardens’ very popular festival Spring Fever in the Garden. This April will be its 20th anniversary. Just one more thing to look forward to this year!
