The United States Botanic Garden (USBG) and Architect of the Capitol updated the Children's Garden in the USBG Conservatory. The Children's Garden is a favorite exploration space for families from around the D.C., Maryland and Virginia area and visitors with children from across the globe.
Improvements include a new platform climbing structure, a new vine tunnel, a new digging area, expanded seating areas and additional shade structures. Spaces to dig, explore, plant, water and care for plants remain in the updated garden.
The project took place during winter and spring when the Children's Garden is normally closed. The pathways throughout the Conservatory remained open for visitors during the project. The Children's Garden reopened to the public in June 2017.
