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.

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!

Please note: The Children's Garden is only available to the public on weekends. It is closed during the week for pre-registered programming.
