Children’s Adventure Garden
We are excited at the progress made in the Children’s Adventure Garden.
An adventure awaits! This space is designed for families and children to immerse in nature and play. Young explorers can crawl through hollow logs, ascend into the canopy of our tree house, or find shade under the stone lizard lair. Our “Boy in the Swing” fountain houses tadpoles, native tree frogs and water skippers. Bunnies, birds, and other wildlife can usually be found around every corner!
Three Sensory Beds sit in the center of this Garden, where young children can experience new textures, amazing sights, and fascinating smells. Older children will enjoy the Kitchen Garden—tending to the vegetables, fruits, herbs and edible flowers that grow next to our miniature Kitchen Play-House. Kids can also learn about meat-eating (carnivorous) plants, Idaho geology, or simply enjoy the instruments of our musical trail. There is an adventure to be had for all ages!
Idaho Geology exhibit and Musical Trail made possible thanks to the John William Jackson Fund in the Idaho Community Foundation.
