Whimsical, well-crafted gardens offer a welcome oasis. Look for special events and experience the Gardens after-hours in an adult setting, too!

My wife and I have visited Bookworm Gardens several times. Today we went with our grandsons, aged 5 and 3 and we all had a good time. It's low key fun, no technology-driven games or the like, but lots to trigger the imagination.

I went with a 10 year old and her friend. She had an amazing time & so much fun for all. Kind of did our own thing, all of the statues are super creative.

Fantastic place to take the kids for the day - plenty for them to interact with in a gorgeous setting. No food or drink available however so bring your own.
