Children's Garden (summer)
Located across from the Main Entrance
Wander through the family-friendly Children’s Garden. See vegetables grow and let children play in Betty’s Market, a realistic farmer’s market for kids. Families can enjoy the shade in rocking chairs perched over Gore Creek or head into the Schoolhouse Gift Shop to find garden-inspired keepsakes.
Discover our botanical gardens in the family-friendly Children’s Garden. Activities engage children’s creativity while also being a great place to stop for the whole family. Look below to see the activities we offer.
The Discovery Cart
Let the kids embrace their own adventure by doing our daily Discovery Cart activity. Everyday, we put out a different activity for the kids to do around the Children’s Garden. They are self-guided and encourage children to open their minds and discover something new about nature.
Betty’s Market playhouse is a great way for the kids to have fun and embrace their creativity while surrounded by our beatiful vegetable garden. Make a connection to where the food on our table comes from or shop the market for the ingredients on your chosen recipe card. Play along with the kids or relax in our rocking chairs, perched over Gore Creek.
Relax in the shade, admire the plants, see how tall rhubarb can grow or shop in our gift shop. The Children’s Garden has plenty to do for everyone!
