Highfield Discovery Garden at Glenwood Gardens
The Highfield Discovery Garden at Glenwood Gardens Park in Cincinnati, Ohio, is one of my kids' favorite places to visit in the summer. It features a 25-foot tall Discovery tree, which kids can climb and discover all kinds of hidden animals and treasures. My personal favorite is Grandma's Scent garden which contains many fragrant plants and herbs. There's also a Wizard's Garden, a Vegetable Garden, a Trolly Garden (sure to be a hit for train lovers), a frog pond (my son's favorite), and a Fairy Garden (my daughter's favorite). The garden is open from May 1 to August 31. Admission is $4 for adults and $3 for children.
The Discovery Tree is the centerpiece of the gardens.
This inviting playhouse is located in Grandma's Scent Garden. There's a nice wooden swing where you can relax and take in the beauty of the gardens next to the playhouse.
