Situated on eight acres, overlooking White Rock Lake, the Garden's 21 galleries will amuse guests for hours. From its gigantic tree house where children can climb and scamper across the suspended canopy netting to its world of enormous plants and its puppet theatre, there really is something for everyone.

Each gallery has been designed for a particular age group. Youngsters can enjoy cooling off in the timed fountains, discovering plant mysteries within the First Adventure gallery and creating fabulous water displays by aiming water guns at interactive models, thereby witnessing the power of water and wind energy.

Older children can challenge themselves in the Amazing Secret Garden. Cryptic clues, whisper tubes and periscopes will lead them to the flag in the centre of the maze.

Within the galleries, puzzles, pictures and models inspire and educate children. The Kaleidoscope gallery incorporates mathematical equations and the Petroglyph Walk depicts different forms of communication through Native American rock drawings.
