In April of 2003, San Diego Botanic Garden introduced the West Coast’s first interactive children’s garden, Seeds of Wonder, designed for pre-school age children. In June of 2009 we opened the largest children’s garden on the West Coast, the Hamilton Children’s Garden. A multi-level tree house with platforms and rope ladders is the center of this new interactive garden, surrounded by more than 15 exciting exhibits which encourage our children to discover and appreciate nature.
