In September 2012, University Hospitals Authority & Trust opened the new Children’s Village. The 10,000-square-foot, rooftop garden sits between the Children’s Atrium and The Children’s Hospital at OU Medical Center. Inspired by illustrations found within children's books, designers have created in the Children's Village an environment where children’s imaginations can whisk them away from the realities of the hospital or doctor’s office. It features a stylized cityscape with shops and stands for pretend play, an open area with stage for small gatherings ideally suited for storytelling, playful seating, whimsical garden spaces and even a fantastical water feature.

 

  • Inspired by illustrations from children’s books, the Children’s Village is a place where a child’s imagination can whisk him or her away from the realities of the hospital or the doctor's office. It is designed to be a space where Oklahoma’s youngest patients and their families can feel at home, relax, have fun and just BE THEMSELVES!
  • Located on rooftop space between the new Children’s Atrium and The Children’s Hospital at OU Medical Center
  • The 10,000-square-foot area is adjacent to The Zone, the hospital’s interactive educational play area, and creates a unique respite for patients and their families.
  • The Children’s Village includes a stylized cityscape with shops and stands for pretend play. The village also includes an open area with a stage for small gatherings and is ideally suited for storytelling.
  • The area features whimsical landscaping and a "make believe" water feature on the south end of the garden - all designed to ensure a vibrant environment year-round.
  • The area was designed for the University Hospitals Authority & Trust by Miles Associates, with help from Zahl-Ford Structural Engineers, Flintco and Seattle-based Dillon Works, which specializes in interactive props, including those at Disney properties.
