Children’s Garden

The Children’s Garden sponsored by HSBC Bank offers a fun and exciting experience where kids spend time planting, playing, observing, and learning in a nurturing environment. The Children’s Garden creates an immersive environment–a blend of structured and free-form exploration designed to provide children the support they need to express their natural curiosity. Each session incorporates the Garden as a resource for hands-on nature discovery, thematic activities, art, and science investigations. Children’s Garden is a drop-off program.

Children’s Garden is in session spring, summer, and fall.
