A children's garden that set the bar for all others to follow. Everything is kid friendly and the programs for young children are fun and creative, beautiful gardens.

An amazing place to spend an afternoon on campus. Gorgeous, with lots of cute hidden attractions including a frog that spits water and tiles that play music when you step on them. Great for kids or grownups looking to be delighted.

We visit the Children's garden at least twice a year, there's so much to learn and see, and the kids have a blast. Sometimes we'll visit the butterfly garden or rose garden as well, and both are equally beautiful. Would recommend, particularly for young children....More

Nice little tucked away place on Michigan State's campus. Good for little kids, bigger kids might be disappointed. Close to the MSU ice cream store. :)

Innovative and fun. Check out the programs available to children. Garden crew works hard at providing new ideas.

Had to bribe kids with ice-cream to leave...great way to spend the morning seeing all types of herbs, vegetables and flowers. I bit of a hike to the MSU Dairy Store, but the ice cream was to die for.
