Nancy Olsen Children's Garden

The Nancy Olson Children’s Garden is located inside the East Loop of the Arboretum. You’ll know you’re there when you come to the koi pond with its charming wood bridge.
Named in honor of a devoted Klehm member, the garden is designed to encourage children to explore the many wonders of nature. Children love navigating the hedge maze to find the surprise waiting for them at journey’s end. The Rainbow and Alphabet Gardens are colorful and educational delights. Don’t forget to say hello to Cow-li-Flower, the Garden’s bovine mascot, before leaving. An octagonal pavilion offers a place for picnicking and can be rented for parties and special events.
