This unique and dynamic program and space requires parents and guardians to supervise their children while co-creating a magical world of possibilities alongside our team of Nature Play Animators. 

Children's Garden Closure

The Children's Garden will be closed starting Tuesday, September 4, 2018 until mid-October due to an exciting revitalization of the space!

Other activities

During the closure, we invite you to join us for other fun, family-friendly activities. 

Nature Play in the Toddlers' Garden

Join us weekends from 10am-3pm in the Toddlers' Garden for a taste of nature play as we explore sand, water and willow in this beautiful and inspiring corner of our site.

Like our Children’s Garden, this space requires parents and guardians to supervise their children while co-creating a magical world of possibilities alongside our team of Nature Play Animators.

Family Nature Walks

Join us for Family Nature Walks each Saturday and Sunday at 10am, 12pm and 2pm starting September 8. We’ll be gathering at the Watershed Wall in Tiffany Commons and exploring the restored quarry using all our senses to learn about the local plants and animals that call Evergreen Brick Works home.

The Children’s Garden is suitable for children and families of all ages as it inspires them to use their imagination in open-ended play and contribute to the care and stewardship of the space.

Here, children have the freedom to be the architects of their environment, to invent and build using their own creativity and problem-solving skills, all while developing an appreciation for the natural world.

Themes respond to the changing seasons and weather, and are based on the natural materials available. Most importantly, our program is a great way to be active and connect with community, family and the environment that sustains us all.

Every weekend visitors will have access to sand and water play, loose parts, greenhouse and urban agriculture zones, or can just enjoy our family-friendly Children's Garden quiet zones with a good storybook or Nature ID guide!

August Monthly Theme: Waterways

Join us for Waterways Month as we explore lakes and rivers, rains and mists, ponds and puddles and celebrate the waterways which unite the landscape, support the lives of all plants and animals and inspire us to care and conserve. Share in the many joys of water this August by staying cool and slowing down in Evergreen’s Children's Garden.
