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.
Educational Programs are included in the Children’s Garden experience during the spring and summer seasons each year. This year’s programming will run from April 25 to October 2, 2022. Learning Themes change monthly and dictate the types of programming featured in the garden.
May: The Magic of Trees
June: Plenty of Pollinators
July: Glorious Gardens
August: Wild World of Water
