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!

Self-Guided Activities

Kid Quest | Daily


Spark your interest in nature by exploring the Garden with Kid Quest, a themed scavenger hunt that asks families to search for six plants. This winter the theme is beautiful bark! Explore a variety of colors and textures on the tree trunks in the Grace Arents Garden.

Here’s How it Works

  1. To get started, just ask for a Kid Quest and a map at the admissions desk in the Robins Visitors Center.
  2. Follow the clues to all six plants and record their names on the brochure.
  3. If you find all six plants, you can get a prize by showing your completed Kid Quest to an Admissions Staff member.
