tucked away near the greenhouses on campus is the children's garden. Open during the day for families, children. Has imaginative layout of flowers, a bridge, a treehouse, a maze, digging area and seating arena for classes. Free, but parking is metered.

An adorable educational garden. Many little sights scattered throughout. The small hedge maze is always fun and be sure to check out their programming. So much fun happening here.

A must do for kids and adults alike. All visitors and locals should visit many times each year. Except for parking it is time well spent.

This is one of several amazing a gardens on MSU's campus. It's great from spring through fall. It's a common venue for family photos, children photos and even engagement photos. The MSU Dairy Store is a short walk away. Go green!

The Children's Garden is a perfect place for a non gardener like me. Signs make it possible to recognize and learn about plants at Michigan State University, where the information is trustworthy. I love the variety of species in such a small area.l the
