Magnuson Children’s Garden

Our mission is to grow a love of gardening and nature by providing free public programs for local families in the Children’s Garden and natural areas of Magnuson Park that are filled with experiential learning and exploration, and to steward the Children’s Garden for all to enjoy.

Project Description

Magnuson Children’s Garden is a vibrant, interactive garden with dozens of fun and educational places to wander and play! From the first design meeting in 2001 to each year’s family events, the garden has been an inclusive project, with all its whimsical and interactive features dreamed up by local children and carried out by child and adult volunteers. The garden is open FREE to the public 365 days a year, and is visited by hundreds of families each year for self-guided exploration, as well as for programs organized by the Magnuson Children’s Garden Committee.  We hope you’ll come and visit too!
