This garden is amazing!! Geared towards the younger visitors, my husband and I enjoyed strolling through the flowers and plants. Under an adorable bridge is a pond filled with lily pads, frogs, fish and beautiful water lilies. Spend a while enjoying nature at her finest.

I love this wonderful delight on MSU Campus! Anytime you visit the children's garden, everyone has so much fun. The spitting frogs, twirling the water faucets and smelling the flowers & herbs. Can't wait to watch my great niece's first time in two weeks!
