Children’s Garden Expansion Project

Nature Nurtures Campaign

“Passion is lifted from the earth itself by the muddy hands of the young; it travels along grass-stained sleeves to the heart.”

-Richard Louv, American Author & Journalist

Nurturing a Love of Nature for All Time

In 2023, the existing Gertrude B. Nielsen Children’s Garden, situated along the southern boundary of Green Bay Botanical Garden, will come to be known as The Village. Today, the Children’s Garden includes a slide tower surrounded by Mr. McGregor’s Garden, a children’s maze, a koi pond, and the Stumpf Hobbit House restroom. The new, expanded Children’s Garden will build upon these beloved favorites.

Connecting nature, play, and learning, we are so excited to transform our current Children’s Garden into a natural wonderland where children in our community and their families discover delight and wonder in their surroundings, and along the way, create memories that will last a lifetime.
