Oakhurst Gardens

Oakhurst Gardens, located in Muncie, Indiana, covers over six acres.  It was developed by Elizabeth Ball in the 1930s.  Today, visitors can see a series of gardens, a renovated 1895 historic home, and a discovery cabin.

 One of my favorite parts of the garden is the Children's Garden.  There's a garden railroad, a vegetable garden, a Secret Garden, a Pizza Garden, Farmyard Garden, and Butterfly Garden.  There's a fun hedge maze that leads to the Secret Garden, where kids can watch fish playing in the pond.

 The gardens are open daily from 9:00 AM to 5:30 PM.  Admission is free.


  1. A pizza garden? I want one of those! Wonder where I can find a pepperoni and jalapeno pizza plant?

    1. Wouldn't it be nice if pizza grew on plants? If you find a pizza plant, let me know!

    1. A bunch of stuff related to gardening - plants, gardening tools, information about the gardens and creatures who live in the gardens.

  3. can't go wrong with a railroad. And I wonder how many kids end up playing in the pond with the fish? Oops, I accidentally fell in.
