Saturday, April 18 –
The Tulsa Botanic Garden has created a wonderland for families called the Children’s Discovery Garden. Taking up almost two acres of land, the garden offers its visitors beautiful walkways, plant life and scenery. The focal point of the garden, the Stream Valley, gets its water from the Spring Giant, a 15-foot stone face that you can enter through a hidden grotto. There is also a Meadow, offering exploration along its trails, and a Tree Fort, which allows guests to look out into the garden from its highest viewpoint. The second of four gardens to undergo construction, the Children’s Discovery Garden offers its explorers experience-based, hands-on learning opportunities. On Saturday, April 18, take the whole family to Tulsa Botanic Garden for the Discovery Garden’s groundbreaking ceremony and celebration. There will be kite making and flying as well as other arts and craft activities. Your child can even make his/her own Spring Giant mask – a feature of the garden. Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy it with others around the garden’s lake. The celebration will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The ceremony will begin at 11 a.m. with special guests.
