The way we look at it, this is a junkyard. An expensive one at that! A park or playground should not have rusted metal. Period! However, the little ones actually like this place. I heard it was fun from others but when we first went...More

Took our 3 yr old granddaughter as an alternative to the Jungle Gardens. She enjoyed it starting with the dress up house. Pirates ship , Hobbitville and the 7 dwarfs house were her highlights. Reasonably priced and fun with pleasant staff.

The Children's Garden is the perfect whimsical spot for letting little ones run wild, play dress up, pretend they are living in the woods, putting on a play or living in a secret house. Ideal spot for play dates, get togethers, parties and general fun....More

The kids loved it! It was such a surprise and so enchanting! Great place to let your kiddos explore freely and see what they can get into! We stayed for story time which was sweet and you can tell the people really love the work.

We are locals, and this is my children's favorite place. It offers a lot for unstructured play and imagination. Don't forget your camera!

There are no food options, only a cute gift shop. She may sell water. You can bring in all your own food.
