A new favorite Children's Discovery Garden!

After reading an article about the Children's Discovery Garden in Dayton I just knew this was a place the kids would love to visit. Yesterday, we decided to do just that. When we first walked up to the park there was this huge woven sculpture. As soon as the boys saw it, they were off and running through the woven maze. As the boys were running laps, I was admiring the gardens! Beautiful! Then it was time discover what all the Children's Discovery Garden had to offer. Where to start? There were several sand tables and ground sand areas, watering pumps, musical gardens, ponds, rainbow garden, sensory garden, prairies, caves, wilderness garden, and oh yes, the water and water falls! The highlight of the day...cooling off in the water!

We also walked through the "secret" gardens, as the boys called them, again beautiful! Really words can not describe how beautiful all the different gardens were.

After spending the entire day at the gardens, and I do mean the entire day, this gem has become a new favorite for us. Not only are gardens beautiful to look at, plenty of places to explore, educational, and lots of things keep these little ones interested, but this Children's Garden is FREE! As I have said before, one of our blessings of living in Cincinnati have been the parks and this one just adds to our list of favorites!
