We spent Sunday at the Children’s Discovery Garden at Tulsa Botanic Gardens. The garden is just a few minutes north of downtown and is an exciting new addition to the city. It was honestly too hot to see the entire garden, but the children’s garden turned out to be plenty of fun for a Sunday afternoon. When we arrived at the front desk, the kids picked up maps to the children’s garden that listed a few fun things to look for as they walked through the area. I like the “scavenger hunt” idea most when it is simple and doesn’t take away from the feeling of being present when you are visiting somewhere. This one was really fun and my list oriented child made sure he found everything!
I was lucky to have a couple extra photographers on hand to capture our day.
The Sensory Walk highlights ways to use all five senses in the garden.
Inside Spring Giant. Contemplating sticking their heads under the water, I think.
The art wall where you can use the water to paint.
Playing the instruments behind Spring Giant, and I think Willa is the majorette.
Inside the magical tree fort. This was our favorite part!
River and Viggo on the awesome “Oak Thrones”. I’m not sure if climbing on them is against the rules.. if so, sorry! (Hanson kids are part monkey!)
Penny and I couldn’t get enough of this beautiful art around the tree branch.
The buddies. climbing on things again 😉
Dressing up in the tree fort. It really was dreamy there!
