Nestled just a few blocks south of Atlantic Ave, our two-plot parcel of land serves as an urban retreat, ripe for exploration and play.
The Delray Beach Children's Garden was created to nurture eco-consciousness in children. We believe that given the opportunity to learn, play and explore in nature, children will grow up wanting to be environmental stewards. We also understand the positive impact a greenspace can have on a community.
From the start, the founding committee believed that a garden for children should include children in the design and build. Children have been an integral part of creating what the garden has to offer today, from serving as judges at our design charrette, to working as volunteers throughout the build. The land, leased to us from St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, has been transformed into an eco-wonderland and thriving community garden and nature center through the support of countless volunteers and supporters.
Garden Features: Veggie Garden Labyrinth, Rare and Tropical Fruit Trees, Fish and Turtle pond, Twig Tunnel, Banana Forest, Well Wishes Healing Garden, Interactive weather and solar power stations, Adventure Boat, Dream Garden, Giant Storytelling Chair with a Treasure Chest Library, Shade Lounge, and the Simon Grass River Chickee Hut for classes, celebrations and gatherings.
