Big Spring at Cleveland Botanical Garden – NOW OPEN
Imagine a curious world where kids can crawl, run, play and discover in an enchanting garden that towers above them and surrounds them with wonderful, vibrant color. This world of floral and whimsical fantasy exists at Cleveland Botanical Garden, where Big Spring returns for its second year.
Surrounded by the sights and scents of bright, beautiful flowers and the sounds of cozy, familiar spring showers, children will be transported into a larger-than-life wonderland of springtime fun, where – rain or shine – choosing what to do first is a kid’s only conundrum:
Dress up Like Insects at the Toadstool Theatre
Kids can don the antennae and wings of their favorite bugs and put on a show for their parents, all while learning what makes bugs unique and why they’re so important to the world around us.
Make a Toast at the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party
Find a secret, secluded grove hosting a tea party for the Garden’s young guests.
Explore the Ladybug Labyrinth
Kids – and their imaginations – can run wild through an indoor hedge maze filled with ladybug facts and treasures.
Join in Polly’s Pollination Parade every day at 12:30 p.m.
Polly – the Garden’s honeybee mascot – loves to dance, play and teach children about the vital roles bees play in our lives and the unique ways bees live.
Crawl through the Discovery Log
Trek through the Discovery Log where you’ll come eye to eye with fascinating and exotic frogs from around the world.
Go Off to the Races
Buy and build a puddle bug boat and set sail in a fish-filled pond or dash off to the mealworm racetrack where kids can pick out a mealworm to race to the finish line.
Welcome Spring to Hershey Children’s Garden
The Garden’s popular Hershey Children’s Garden re-opens for the season with Big Spring, featuring daily activities that are sure to thrill kids of all ages!
