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.   Committee members work together to host FREE, family-friendly events on the 2nd & 4th Saturdays of each month from March to August, plus special events throughout summer and fall!

For the full calendar of our 2019 events, visit our Events webpage!


Magnuson Children’s Garden is one part of the 4-acre Magnuson Community Garden, one of the largest community gardens on the west coast.  Magnuson Community Garden 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 in less than 3 years, we will be celebrating our 20th Anniversary!
