Garden Closed

The United States Botanic Garden (USBG) is temporarily closed to the public to reduce the risk of transmitting COVID-19 coronavirus.

Whenever possible, the USBG will reschedule public programs and events originally scheduled during the closure period. Please monitor the USBG website at www.USBG.gov for updates to operating status. Many resources can still be accessed online, including educational worksheets and manuals, fact sheets and more, and some of our programs will also be made available online.

Growing Children’s Imaginations

**The Children's Garden is seasonal, open Spring-Fall. The Garden will reopen Spring 2020.**

Come explore the updated Children's Garden!

The arrival of warm weather and spring blooms brings out the kid in all of us, and there's no better place for kids and their parents than the U.S. Botanic Garden.

Explore the outdoor Children's Garden in the U.S. Botanic Garden Conservatory where kids can grow their imaginations while checking out a variety of colorful garden plants. The Children's Garden gives kids a chance to get hands-on in a garden where they can explore and use gardening tools and watering cans.

When young children use their imaginations to relate to their surroundings, there is evidence that they are also developing a life-long affection for the natural world.

Kids are invited to see what's in bloom and to gently touch and smell the plants in the Children's Garden. Watch your kids relax, discover and reawaken their sense of curiosity!
