Great for kids and older, Beautiful and fun.The gardens are very unique because they are associated with nursery rhymes and childrens stories and kids educational television shows.

It is a very large garden, where each section is based on the imagination of a children's book. My husband and I were quite impressed and the kids had a spectacular time exploring. We wished we had brought our lunches and let the kids play longer.

Lovely gardens with long paths that meander through the grounds. Many of the gardens are themed to a children's book, so kids can visit Mr. McGregor's garden or the three little pigs houses. My daughter loved trick or treating here in October.

What a beautiful place to explore, with or without children! I went with my daughter and daughter-in-law, grandchildren, and great grandson. We ALL loved it. The gardens are so imaginative. The kids all loved the fact that they could explore inside and out, and touch things!! And it's free!
