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

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.
