The children’s garden at the United States Botanical Garden has re-opened and is better than ever.

The newly renovated children’s garden at the United States Botanical Garden is now open to the public. Features like the misters and watering can station remain while new areas like shoveling and composting are new.

You may be a city kid when, shoveling is a total delight.

Notably a playhouse has been added and it showcases a variety of fibers, seeds and soil. It includes a child sized picnic area and interactive activities like a rain wheel and a narrow bridge to climb across.

Playing is hard work, this picnic area is underneath the playhouse and was a tight squeeze for me to get into, but Ooey insisted.

Throughout the playhouse are features like this which showcase textures of different plant fibers.

The garden has always been a destination for me as it provides an area for children to dig, water and run around. The children’s garden is located within the United States Botanical Garden and is accessible during normal hours of operation.
