Grand Opening Of Unique Children's Garden

Updated: Wednesday, April 30 2014, 09:31 AM CDT

A new Austin garden has been created with kids in mind. The grand opening of the Lucy and Ian Family Garden at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center will be held on May 4.

You won't find plastic in the playground. It was designed around the concept of nature play. You'll find logs to climb on, giant birds' nests to play in, caves to hide in and piles of dirt to dig in.

"A lot of studies show kids aren't spending enough time outside anymore. We wanted to provide a place for that where their imaginations can run wild," says Damon Waitt, Senior Director and Botanist at Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center.

The 4.5 acre playground also has a gorgeous waterfall feature that resembles a grotto and even workout machines for parents to play on while their little ones explore.

The grand opening will be held from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm. For ticket prices and day of event information click here.
