The Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation Children’s Garden

This 2-acre garden is the largest horticulture project ever undertaken by the Conservatory. Featuring numerous unique, interactive experiences celebrating the Ohio landscape, the Children’s Garden will focus on introducing and connecting children to the natural world, as well as renewing that connection for their parents and caregivers. A selection of Educational Programs is available annually, this year the programs begin on May 1.

The Children’s Garden will support the Conservatory’s outreach and education mission, promoting active learning for all ages, with an emphasis on health and the natural sciences.

The Children’s Garden is open year-round, with the exception of various water features which are currently closed for the season.
