How good is a garden that is totally dedicated to children? Full of things that get their little brains thinking, their legs moving and their mouths smiling! Best bit - it's FREE!
If you visit in the warmer months, make sure to bring a change of clothes as there are multiple water play options - guaranteed to end up with very wet - but very happy little bodies!
If you go in colder, wet weather - be sure to wear gumboots as there are lots of leafy, grassy areas to explore - which equals MUDDY PUDDLES!
There are mazes to challenge them, lakes to ponder, trees to climb, a bamboo forest to explore, a tree-house with a spiral staircase to discover, as well as lots of animal-shaped shrubs to spot!
In the community garden you will also find a sand pit - perfect to get hands dirty.
This is a fully fenced in area - and an absolute perfect picnic spot for a mother's group or family outing!
