The Learning Pavilion sits between two very important programmed venues in the Children’s Garden: Let’s Garden, an edible-themed hands-on gardening space and Nature Art Studio, an earth art experience. In addition, visitors are invited to join Discovery Programs focused on the natural world at the Learning Pavilion.

Visitors find many creature comforts here: family-style restrooms, hand washing stations, and comfortable seating. That, along with its dynamic roof lines and exquisite detailing, makes the Learning Pavilion an essential part of any Children’s Garden visit.
