“A Very Creative Learning Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

This childrens garden is expertly coordinated. The various bed themes are great and followed through with as much imagination as information.

“Take the kids to the MSU Children's Garden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2012

Great place for kids to run around and learn about plants and flowers. There are places to play, a hedge maze, a swinging gate, water, and nursery rhyme and story references. Very fun for all ages.

“Good try”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2012

Someone had a great idea to build a children's garden at MSU. It needs more TLC and more information about the plants growing there.

“A lot to see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2012

The 4-H Children's Garden is a jewel on the campus of Michigan State University. The gardens which are located within MSU's amazing and vast demonstration gardens have lots of educational botanical exhibits for kids to witness. There are pizza gardens, tree houses, frog which "spit" when you turn a wheel, and even a great musical chimes which when you jump on them they ring. It would be a great place for a field trip.
