Kew Children's GardenTwo years in the making, a new Children's Garden at Kew opens to the public on 18th May 2019. Covering 10,000 metres squared, it's the size of 40 tennis courts and includes lots of natural elements. A four metre high canopy walk is wrapped around a 200-year-old oak tree and more than 100 mature trees fill the landscape including ginkgo, pines, sweet chestnut, beech and eucalyptus trees. Designed around the elements that plants need to survive: earth, air, sun and water, the space encourages children to play as they learn. In the earth garden is a giant sand pit with a play hut village surrounded by bamboo plants and tunnel slides. Air is represented by giant windmill flowers, pollen spheres, hammocks, swings and trampolines. A ring of sunflowers, water pumps and stepping stones complete the life cycle of plants. Aimed at children aged 2 to 12, a giant log scramble challenges older kids to get across to the leaning tower without touching the ground.

 

About Kew Gardens (Royal Botanic Gardens)

Since the 18th century, these extensive gardens have been the spiritual home of botany in England, if not in Europe. From the cooling glades of the British Woodland Garden to the pulsating humidity of the exotic Palm House, the delicate beauty of the Rose Garden to the soothing tranquillity of the Waterlily House, at Kew you can witness over 40,000 plants embarking on a fascinating journey through their annual cycles - flowering and fruiting, growing and resting.
