Children's Garden Update

Watch two exciting new projects take root in the Children’s Garden over the coming months: a brand-new WaterPlay and enhancements to the Klaus Family Tree House. Safety is our top priority, so we’ll have limited access to some Children’s Garden areas at certain times. We’ll post updates on our homepage. Thank you for understanding as we bring you these wonderful improvements!
