National Arboretum Canberra

The Childrens’ Garden

The Children's Garden encourages children to play, explore and interact with their environment through the use of colour, texture, scent and form. The variety of plants creates a range of active play spaces, offering fun and stimulating experiences for all ages. Contemplative elements allow space for children to think, relax and let their imagination roam.

The metaphor of a tree or plant holds a wonderful parallel to the way that people live and grow within their environment, and the garden's variety of plants express the connection between plants and people. Bench seats and umbrellas provide shaded seating at good vantage points and a separate space is available for small gatherings or parties.
