Magnuson Children’s Garden is a vibrant, interactive place, created by community volunteers using ideas that have been dreamed up by local children and their parents! The garden is filled with plants and other features that delight all the senses, is FREE to the public, and open 365 days a year for families to have self-guided scavenger hunts and other adventures.

The Magnuson Children’s Garden Committee has guided the garden’s creation and its ongoing development since 2001, and host FREE, family-friendly events each month from March to October.  For the full calendar of our public events, visit our Free Events page!


Magnuson Children’s Garden is part of the 4-acre Magnuson Community Garden, one of the largest community gardens on the west coast.  It is a non-profit entity that also includes a P-Patch, Demonstration Orchard, Native Plant Border and Nursery, and Horticulture Therapy Garden, all surrounding a beautiful Amphitheater.

At the 2011 Fall Harvest Celebration, hundreds of kids and parents joined Caspar Babypants in singing Happy Birthday to the Children’s Garden to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of its creation!

It’s so hard to believe that the garden is now over 20 years old!  Visit this Google Photo page to see how we celebrated this milestone anniversary, along with the installation of the new double-sided mural and wheelchair-accessible pathways!
