The Playhouse Garden encourages creative dramatic play and provides a welcome respite from higher energy zones in the Children’s Garden. The Playhouse Garden offers a whimsical playhouse, puppet stage and plenty of opportunities for dress up and role playing as well as flexible lawn areas and moveable furniture and a secret path to the Nature Play Zone.
