The new two-acre Children’s Garden at The Franklin Park Conservatory (brought to you by support from the Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation) has officially opened, offering Conservatory visitors another outdoor space to explore, learn about the botanical world, and have some fun in the process.

Features of the facility include interactive spaces focused on gardening, art, music, and plenty of outdoor exercise. A waterfall provides place for kids to splash and cool off in a shallow natural-style stream, while an overhead bridge offers views of the park from up high.

The new Children’s Garden is only accessible to paid visitors to the Franklin Park Conservatory. Entry is free to all residents of Franklin County on the first Sunday of every month.
