THE CHILDREN’S GARDEN….
A sixteen foot climbing mountain is the hub of the garden with paths circling it to encourage running and physical play. Small themed activity “niches” can be found throughout the area and each has both a physical and educational component. The garden has many trees, bushes, shrubs and flowers to attract birds and butterflies and the construction materials are as environmentally friendly as possible.
With parental supervision, children will be able to discover, imagine and enjoy all of the gardens’ features:
- Hobbit House
- Look-Out Tower
- ABC Garden & Reading Nook
- Tiny Tots Exploration Area
- Drip Drop Water Zone
- Butterfly Garden
- Dinosaur Dig
- Nest Niche
- Zippity Zip Line
- Tune Town
- My Free Library
