Green Bay Botanical Gardens









Opened in 1996, the Green Bay Botanical Gardens in Greenbay, Wisconsin, contain forty-seven acres of gardens and natural areas that showcase Wisconsin's seasonal beauty.



   
Within these forty-seven acres is the Gertrude B. Nielson Children's Garden.  It covers only a half an acre, but there are so many neat things for kids to do.  Some of the fun features include a tree house, a slide, a vine maze, a re-circulating pond, and a giant sundial.



 There are seven gardens within the children's garden where kids can explore natural wonders.  These include the Einstein Garden, Peter Rabbit Garden, Sensory Garden, and Frog Bridge.  
The gardens are open Monday through Saturday from 9-4.  Admission is $7.00 per adult and $2.00 for children.

  1. How very unusual. I love the statues and I know some children who would love the children's garden: Jacob, Zack, Sonny & Lois!

  2. I'm sure it's a gem in the summer, probably not the best place to visit in winter - and yet, if there's not too much snow it would be quite unique. Love the statues
