A "Typical" Visit

We are not sure there is a "typical" visit, but if there is, this is what it might look like.

  • Park and feed the meters (except in the evenings and on weekends).
  • Explore the 4-H Children's Garden - "experience plants" (this could take from 30 minutes to 3 hours).
  • Take lots of pictures.
  • Enjoy a snack in the garden.
  • Do the 4-H Children's Garden scavenger hunt.
  • Explore the QR Codes in the garden (this requires a smart phone and Scan app).
  • Bathroom break - there is a porta-potty just outside the 4-H Children's Garden or you can go inside the building (once inside, follow the blue line).
  • Explore the Pete & Sally Smith Schoolyard Demonstration Garden
  • Enjoy a picnic lunch in the garden.
  • Get a MSU Dairy Store ice cream snack from the Visitor's Information Booth (or if it is not open you can easily walk to the dairy store).
  • Explore the rest of the Horticulture Gardens - Perennial Display, Annual Trials, Roses and Vegetable Garden.
  • Visit the 4-H Children's Garden to dance on the Dance Chimes once more!
  • Pack everything up and head for the car.
  • Talk about all the fun you had at the gardens as you drive home.
  • Start planning your next trip to the 4-H Children's Gardens.

We hope you enjoy your visit and look forward to seeing you in the gardens again real soon!
