Great Big Play Day
Sunday June 2, 2013:


Summer is here, and there's no better way to take advantage of the warm weather than spending a day with the family in the great outdoors. That's why we're happy to announce our "Great Big Play Day" proudly sponsored by 4Site, Inc.!

This family-friendly event showcases almost every square inch of the Garden's 112 acres of natural beauty. You can spread a blanket in the shade of one of our dogwood trees or claim your spot by the lake. Take a walk along the Mathews Nature Trail, cool off in one of our many water feature displays and stop by the Damson Aquatic Garden to spot brightly colored fish. It's up to you! With so many theme gardens, play areas, and open spaces to choose form. there are plenty of ways to enjoy this special summer Sunday.

Make your plans to spend the day at the Garden and enjoy the many games and activities we've got planned for all ages - from the young to the young at heart. Pack up that picnic basket, put on some sunscreen, and join us here at the Garden for a summer day of play that you and your family won't forget!
