Family Adventure Garden

Please Note: No Name Creek flows seasonally and is currently off. Splashing resumes in the spring.


Play outside and get the wiggles out! Experience 15 fun spaces that encourage unstructured play and exploration. Run up and roll down Tumble Hill, find your way through the kid-friendly Muhly Maze, and trek through Thunder Ridge and listen for a clap of thunder.

Here are some ideas on what to bring:

  • Pack a picnic or grab a healthy snack at the Gift Shop.
  • Bring  a refillable water bottle. The Garden has new water refill stations.
  • Bring a towel if you want to dry off after splashing in No Name Creek. (Open seasonally.)
  • Sunscreen and hats are great, too!

Parents and caregivers will find plenty of places within the Family Adventure Garden for resting, picnicking, and socializing with friends. We’ll see you at the Garden!
