Children’s Garden Expansion Project at Green Bay Botanical Garden

The current Nielsen Children’s Garden includes a slide tower surrounded by Mr. McGregor’s Garden, a maze, a koi pond, and the Stumpf Hobbit House restroom. In 2023, the expansion will build upon these beloved favorites surrounding the Gertrude B. Nielsen Village, with a wide variety of new areas to enjoy.

The Carol & Bruce Bell Children’s Garden will include a number of unique features including:

Gateway Sculpture, sponsored by the late Edward L. Meyer, Jr. and Mary Ellen Troup

Michael & Judith Parrish Family Raindrop Garden

Cornerstone Foundation Wetland Deck & Stream Terrace Garden

Gail Fischer Family Lily Pad Splash Pad

Rosemann Family Field Vegetable Garden

Green Bay Packers Big Oak Play Area

KC Stock Foundation Mushroom Jumper Play Area

George Kress Foundation Tree Houses

Patricia Schneider Council of Critters

Schanock Family Hillside Tunnel & Cave

The project also includes nature-based art sculptures from well-known artists from across the country that will help to tell the engaging and educational stories of nature. Families will be able to experience the wonder of the Wisconsin wild and learn together, instilling a love of nature for all time.
