The CG Committee

The Magnuson Children’s Garden Committee is a group of dedicated volunteers who have guided the garden’s creation and ongoing development since 2001.  We work together to make decisions needed to manage the garden maintenance and enhance the delightful features that make the Children’s Garden a wonderful resource for the community. We also work together to plan and carry out free public education programs and special events!

  • Guided Nature Walks for adults and children of all ages in the natural areas of the park;

We meet as a group 2-3 times a year, talk over upcoming plans and decisions informally during our monthly garden events, and exchange emails in between.  For more information on the Children’s Garden Committee, send us an email at  Thanks!
