Garth Brooks joins in the activities at the opening of The Child Life Zone at The Children's Hospital of San Antonio on Aug. 5. The Garth Brooks Teammates for Kids Foundation along with The James B. & Lois R. Archer Charitable Foundation, The Reilly Family and the Hope Hits Harder Foundation were among the main funders for the activity area that is open to patients of the CHRISTUS Health hospital and their families. The indoor attraction includes a sensory gym, open play space, arts and crafts area, recording studio, video game wall and a cafe. The hospital says the zone is designed to get kids playing together, give patients a break from their hospital routine and reduce stress and anxiety that can go along with being sick.
