Children's Garden

Explore. Discover. Grow.

The Children's Garden is filled with inviting areas for curious kids to explore:

  • Pump water from the giant watering can to create rivers in the channeled rock sculpture
  • Experience the fascinating plants in the Wild, Weird and Wonderful Garden
  • Wander the paths of the Secret Garden
  • Cross the pond on stepping stones and stand on the bridge to watch the water ripple
  • Hike from the grasslands to the glaciers to see plants that grow in different Colorado ecosystems
  • Visit the friendly scarecrows and Fairy Garden
  • Play make-believe in the Dr. Seuss playhouse

While the youngsters explore, parents will enjoy the four-season beauty of the Children's Garden, having lunch under the Greenroof Shelter, or relaxing on the Four Season Lawn.

Parents - have your child's birthday party at The Children's Garden! Download our Youth Birthday Party package for more information.
