As one of the Garden's most popular attractions, the Children's Garden has received a facelift with lots of new features and exhibits but with plenty of old favorites maintained as well.
When it opened in 1999, the Children's Garden was one of the first of its kind in the country. and now it is time to imagine a new chapter for future generations to enjoy. The re-envisioned garden, newly named the Lou Glenn Children's Garden, dramatically expands opportunities to engage children directly with plants by adding more bedding space for edible plants, places for kids to hide amongst grasses and willows, and close encounters with carnivorous plants. The new garden also abounds with opportunity for hands-on activity because the best learning for children is accomplished through play. In addition, one of the most popular features, the splash fountain, will be shifted from the garden’s entrance and expanded for more room to splash.
Closed during construction, the Lou Glenn Children's Garden will reopen in two phases, the second in late summer/early fall. Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for news on the opening!
