Children’s Garden Grand Opening at Mercer Botanic Garden

Children and families are invited to the Grand Opening of the Children’s Garden at Mercer Botanic Gardens! Join us to celebrate National Get Outdoors Day with fun activities and learning experiences for the whole family.

This area was designed with our littlest gardeners in mind to help connect children to plants through hands-on learning opportunities. This garden includes sensory plants, a “plant zoo”, and even fun water play!

Children thrive in a natural environment and we want to make sure they feel welcome outdoors. This is a safe space where children and families can explore and learn to love nature together!
