attractive, lots of signs which name the plants. Adjacent to the magnificent MSU gardens. Activities for the little ones...especially the squirting frogs

This is a part of the MSU Horticultural gardens which contains a ton of lovely plants and flowers. Absolutely gorgeous to look at and a very romantic spot for a stroll with your significant other.

This is a fun place to take kids to play for an afternoon. There is no cost to visit. You could cover it all in 30 minutes or make an afternoon out of it.

On our visit last week, several exhibits were in need of repair. However, with the lengthy harsh winter we have experienced, I am sure the restoration crew is on the way. This exhibit is different each time. Empty-so heavenly. Crowded-so lively. Walk all of the paths and enjoy!

Beautiful garden for children of all ages. Creative gardens and landscaping. A great place for children to see what can be done with flowers and plants or to learn about them.

It's free. It's outdoors. It has nice spaces to play and explore. It has shade and a model train on Thursdays -- and a real live huge train that passes by on what I'm guessing is a daily basis. My son got a huge kick out of this. The playground structure tower is an excellent viewing platform. Thanks to 4-H... More

You have to pay for parking via ticket machine. I remember if you didn't have exact coins it only took big bills and only gave you parking tokens back not money. (The Parking is why I took one star off). Once you get to the garden, let the kids go and follow them along the paths in a mini labyrinth,... More

Whenever my nieces and nephews visited when my daughter was small, we'd go to the 4h children's garden at MSU. It has a model train, a pond with occasional turtles and frogs, a little maze, chimes that you jump on, a playground train to climb on, holes in the fence to watch real trains go by, little sculptures everywhere and...

Beginning in March with the opening of the Butterfly House in the building adjacent to the Children's Garden, you can have a wonderful experience for children as young as two years old. The garden itself features sculptures and a wonderful water feature. Familiar and unusual plants are grown in very child friendly spaces throughout the garden. It is a great... More
