My kids love coming to Bookworm Gardens!! We can easily spend a few Hours there....and it's completely free (though you can leave a donation)! They especially love the fairy garden area. Definite must see...the place is amazing and so well taken care of! The only downside is that the restrooms are not open if the store area isn't open.

This is such a wonderful interactive place for children. There are fun chairs, little houses, with lots of wonderful book connections. Lots of trees so it's shady on a hot day. Take your stroller in with you. There was no fee when we went. I believe it is still free, but things can change. They were still building when we... More

This is a great place to take my toddlers. They get to play outside and learn at the same time! I also love how they have some stories that are more familiar along with others that are not. My kids love walking through there and especially "driving" the bus!

This place is great. The colors are beautiful. Donations are requested. The perfect place to take pictures of your children. I just saw a photo gallery of a friends baby from here that were awesome. Looks just like a story coming to life. Neat. Would recommend anyone coming to the area to check it out. Alot of other neat attractions... More

This garden was enchanting for anyone who loves botanical gardens or books. Young children will especially enjoy this location. Free admission (donations requested). Looking forward to visiting again.

In an hour of playing we've barely covered one fourth of this beautiful Children's Garden. Enjoyed the Magic School Bus, Winnie the Pooh, the Loch Ness monster dragon and the cottage and more. On the grounds of university of Wisconsin and near Kohler Spa this is definitely worth a stop through.

This was a great find! My wife is a children's librarian, and she was in 7th Heaven. The gardens are beautiful, and are a great way to combine education and entertainment. And it's free! -but good enough that you want to leave them a donation.
