Happening Now!

The Children’s Garden is open year-round! Enhance your visit by experiencing Lewis Ginter through these self-guided activities.

The Children’s Garden is designed so youngsters can experience the great outdoors by observing wildlife; digging in the dirt; climbing a one-hundred-year-old mulberry tree, or simply doing nothing at all. Learn more!
