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 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.

Our 4 year old son absolutely loved exploring at the children's garden and would have probably stayed there forever if we would've let him. There is seating in the centre for a picnic but I would just recommend sitting there and letting your kid run...More
