LIKE SO MANY OF YOU, Magnuson Childrens Garden Committee has had to make major changes to all its activities in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. WE ARE HAPPY TO ANNOUNCE that we have been able to resume our small group stewardship events (see Free Events for dates and times), and we are hopeful that soon it will be possible to resume hosting other public events. IN THE MEANTIME, we very much encourage you to visit the Childrens Garden during Magnuson Park open hours to explore, experience, and enjoy this colorful oasis and welcoming environment for kids and families, as well as for birds, butterflies, and other beneficial wildlife. IN ADDITION, we stand with our Asian American/Pacific Islander, Black, Indigenous, and People of Color communities during this significant time in our history. The Magnuson Childrens Garden mission is rooted in growing love, and we will continue on this path by advocating for equality throughout our community, fostering shared experiences, and supporting the much-needed healing and wellness that nature provides.

New double-sided mural project!

The Children’s Garden Committee has begun an exciting new mural project with local artist and teacher Sandy Bricel Miller of Red Ochre Art Studio.  The theme for this public art is “All are Welcome”, and multiple sessions were held in March and April with youth that live in the neighborhoods inside and around Magnuson Park, to design two murals that provide a colorful and inclusive welcome to all park visitors.

Want to volunteer to help with the mural creation?  Send an email to for more info.

This project is funded in part by a Neighborhood Matching Fund award from Seattle Department of Neighborhoods.
