PUBLIC GRAND OPENING
(Members-only preview on Friday, March 20, 3 – 6 p.m.)
Join us for a day of celebration and free play in the Gainesville Garden’s new Ada Mae Pass Ivester Children’s Garden. Enjoy special programming, face-painting, performances, photos with Tree Man, music, food and more! Activities run 9 a.m. – 3 p.m., but the Garden will be open until 6 p.m.
The 2 ½-acre attraction is perched on the highest point of the property. Newly planted trees and flowering shrubs envelope this magical space where fire, water and earth intertwine with unforgettable features like Desmond the Dragon, a new Train Garden, a Treehouse/Play Fort and so much more.
Designed by Spurlock Landscape Architects, the garden features hands-on exploration, opportunities for adventure, water play and free play elements. Sounds of laughter and squeals of delight waft over the entire garden as children check out this wonderful new setting.
