Great place to walk and explore .Children enjoyed finding pictures of favorite storybook characters throughout the garden. Also able to learn to identify different plants. Benches, shaded area to sit and watch your children play on a sunny day.

The picture on the website was not accurate, though some ladies were there planting some flowers. The little park has plenty of potential but needs lots of tender loving care.

I've taken my granddaughters to the Children's Garden at Linky Stone Park several times, most recently this summer. Due to the nearby construction, we had to find parking in a ramp a few blocks away. The summer display of flowers is much better than fall or winter, but the garden is enjoyable any time. The girls like exploring the river's... More

At the moment, there is a lot of construction going on around here. Linky Stone park is still accessible, but some of the benches have been moved around and there are some cordoned off areas right next to it. Wouldn't bring kids here at this time. It's also a real task to find parking. Too bad, it looks pretty charming... More

This children's garden was delightful. The plants were planned by letters of the alphabet and the statues were child size and friendly. Worth the short walk! Would definitely take my grandchildren there.

This little garden area holds a special place in my heart. This is where my son learned to walk, climb, and explore. It is a great area for especially young children who are just discovering the world. The bridge keeps it cool, ducks frequent the area, and the many pathways lead to several small areas of wonder. I can't help... More

Overall Greenville, SC is very kid friendly and welcoming. This location highlighted this theme. Creative vision took an area under the highway and created a imaginative, intriguing, and educational venue. I preferred this site to the Children's museum!!! Much more fun to explore without the noise and crowds!

This is more of those local-type places. Not much to do for "entertainment" but if you like older children's stories and hanging out with your children for a few minutes this is it! It's quiet and not too much to do (as far as equipment goes)...but there is a beautiful little charm about it. A trail, few items that are... More

We went here purposefully while in Greenville. I thought it would be more than it was, but what it actually was... was not bad. We visited in the late winter, so none of the listed plants had bloomed; I am not sure if the plants would have bloomed / were planted. My kids thought the music makers were great -... More

This park is at the end of the Cleveland Park/Falls Park corridor. It is designed for quite young children as a place to enjoy simple, imaginative play. There are interesting statues, lovely paintings, bright colors, beautiful flowers and often a few ducks hanging out. Early in the morning it also seems to be an occasional bedroom for few homeless people... More
