Magnuson Children’s Garden

Magnuson Children’s Garden is FREE to the public and open 365 days a year for families to have self-guided scavenger hunts and other adventures!

Magnuson Children’s Garden is part of the 4-acre Magnuson Community Garden, which is one of the largest community gardens on the west coast.  Magnuson Community Garden is a non-profit entity that also includes a P-Patch, Demonstration Orchard, Native Plant Border and Nursery, and Horticulture Therapy Garden, all surrounding a beautiful Amphitheater.

This vibrant, interactive, children’s garden was created by community volunteers, using the ideas that have been dreamed up by local children and their parents! The garden is filled with plants and other features that delight all the senses, and Magnuson Nature Programs is very lucky to be able to use it as our “outdoor headquarters”.


The Whale’s fabulous mosaic tail is a favorite place, whether on or under!
