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.

tucked away near the greenhouses on campus is the children's garden. Open during the day for families, children. Has imaginative layout of flowers, a bridge, a treehouse, a maze, digging area and seating arena for classes. Free, but parking is metered.

An adorable educational garden. Many little sights scattered throughout. The small hedge maze is always fun and be sure to check out their programming. So much fun happening here.

The gardens are beautifully done and so much fun. I would definitely come back here. My little getaway from the rest of the world.

Unless your kiddo likes plants/flowers, there's not a lot to do here. The maze is fine and the various gardens and things are nice. The price is right, but watch out for the parking cost!
