Giveaway: 4 Pack to Atlanta Botanical Garden

Lou Glenn Children’s Garden Children’s Garden Reblooms Renovated attraction offers cool splash pad

By Atlanta Botanical Garden June 1, 2017

Looking for a cool place to take the kids during those sweltering days of summer? The newly renovated Lou Glenn Children’s Garden at the Atlanta Botanical Garden is just the ticket.

The Children’s Garden, redesigned and renovated last year, features:
~A larger splash pad. This popular feature was always crowded on hot days; now it is nearly twice the size of the former splash area, with lots of room for parents and caregivers to sit. Additionally, the entrance to the garden has been re-routed so that visitors can tour it without having to walk through the water feature.
~More places for active outdoor play. In addition to the expanded splash area, look for a new treehouse area with climbing nets, a climbing wall and slides as well as some fun bridges to play on.
~More opportunities for hands-on play. These include a water "painting" wall, a building area and musical instruments to play. The Garden also offers new nature play activities and classes.
~A new restroom building. Designed by Smith Dalia Architects, this much-needed facility includes a family restroom and large courtyard.
What didn’t change? Old favorites like the flower growth chart, where so many families have marked the growth of their children, remains but in a new location. The pond and waterfall are virtually unchanged, while the carnivorous plant bog has been expanded. And the gnome grotto stays the same, so families can look forward to visiting those little guys again this summer.

The garden is named in honor of longtime Garden supporter Lou Glenn, who was instrumental in developing the original Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Children’s Garden when it opened at the botanical garden in 1999 -- one of the first of its kind in the country.

The mission of the Atlanta Botanical Garden is to develop and maintain plant collections for display, education, research, conservation, and enjoyment. The Garden, located at 1345 Piedmont Ave. NE is open Tuesday through Sunday from 9 a.m. - 7 p.m. Admission is $21.95 adults, $15.95 children 3-12, free for children under three and Garden members. For information, call 404-876-5859 or visit HERE.
