It was great to see so many smiling faces at our annual Scarecrow Fest on Saturday October 6th! The garden is in all its fall glory right now, and a fun place to visit anytime of year. We hope you will drop by with the whole family to enjoy it, and to help test out our brand new scavenger hunt! The bright green scavenger hunt cards are in the kiosk brochure box- use one to see if you can find all 9 garden locations and do the activities listed on the card. Then send us an email at to let us know what you think of the scavenger hunt. Thanks!

News from Teacher Emily

Though I have retired from my Magnuson Park job, I am still very much involved as a volunteer member of the Magnuson Children’s Garden Committee! From now on, from spring to fall I’ll be co-leading some of the Children’s Garden FREE classes, special events, and nature walks, and I hope to see you there!
