The Children’s Garden

The Children's Garden, Botanic Gardens Melbourne

The Ian Potter Foundation Children’s Gardens is a garden in which children are encouraged to express themselves creatively by using their imagination and getting their hands dirty. 

The garden provides the opportunity for children and parents to play and discover the delight of plants in the natural world. Innovative education and visitor programs are constantly being developed for and delivered at the Children's Garden. With such a variety of plants to spark a child’s interest, their understanding is being fostered of the connections between plants, food and culture.’
