A children's garden that set the bar for all others to follow. Everything is kid friendly and the programs for young children are fun and creative, beautiful gardens.

An amazing place to spend an afternoon on campus. Gorgeous, with lots of cute hidden attractions including a frog that spits water and tiles that play music when you step on them. Great for kids or grownups looking to be delighted.
