Green Bay Botanical Garden: Gertrude B. Nielson Children's Garden





Opened in 1996, the Green Bay Botanical Gardens in Green Bay, 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.

Before I go, I'd like to let you know that this month, I will be doing an online blog tour to promote my book, Bubba and Squirt's Big Dig to China. The stop on October 5th will be at Writer's Gambit .If you have a minute, please stop by and visit.

    1. Thanks. Butchart is beautiful! My husband is going to Vancouver in January. I almost wish I could go with him just to visit the gardens.

  5. I've been to several botanical gardens, but haven't seen anything like you describe for the kids. Sounds very cool.
