From the moment you walk into the Garden, you can smell the beautiful flowers. And then you look up and see these whimsical flower umbrellas scattered throughout the lobby.
It feels bright and welcoming and exactly how Spring should. If you head into the Garden of Fun, there’s a ladybug maze (with a train this year…it’s like the knew Jeffrey was coming), the Mad Hatter’s tea party, Toadstool Dress-Up Theater, and fun paddle boats to sail. This area is perfect for little ones to explore and enjoy!
There’s also the Discovery Log, with little critters to see, as well as a fairy garden and some areas on hands-on exploration upstairs.
For the grown-ups, the beautiful flowers, butterfly releases, and oversized chess and checkers games will charm you. Weather-permitting, there are also outdoor activities planned in the Hershey Children’s Garden.
Big Spring is happening at the Garden from now through Sunday, April 23. Admission is $12 for adults, $8 for children ages 3-12, and free for children 2 and under, as well as members of the Cleveland Botanical Garden. The Garden is open 10am-5pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays; 10am-9pm on Wednesdays, and 12-5pm on Sundays.
Come experience the wonder of Spring, even before the outside world catches up to it!
