A stimulating environment of imagination for tots

The new Tot Lot is now open daily from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

It features play structures for pint size imaginations surrounded by the Learning Garden’s trees, flowers and lush landscaping. There are also ample places to sit and park strollers.

There’s even an interactive, hands-on area for educating children about the seasonal life cycle of a garden that fosters sustainability and environmentally friendly practices. A team of YBG Garden Guides will involve children in gardening, crafts, music and story hour, tours of the Garden, and holiday-themed activities.
