Boerner Botanical Gardens has a new $2 million children’s garden

The new $2 million children’s backyard at Boerner Botanical Gardens in Hales Corners is now open. 

Margie’s Back garden, found just west of Boerner’s Instruction & Customer Middle, is made up of loads of child-pleasant attributes, together with an alphabet backyard garden, figures garden, playhouses and whimsical sculptures of bees, butterflies and caterpillars.

The colorful, inviting space — about two acres in overall — also features audio makers, slides, a “flower shop” with no cost postcards, minor libraries and a tiny phase with a seating place.

And what child wouldn’t like a rustic bridge leading to an “enchanted cottage?”

“Margie’s Garden is a specific location for children and their family members to smile and engage in the joys of mother nature,” a information from the Kezman relatives, the project’s donors, says on a indication in the backyard. “It invites guests to set absent the technologies and participate in in the filth. To expand their imagination, to scent the bouquets, to stroll and speak with each other.”
