Everett Children’s Adventure Garden’s 5th Birthday
The Everett Children’s
Adventure Garden celebrates five years of educating children,
their families, and their teachers with a wide range of fun and
engaging programs and exhibits. The Adventure Garden is a destination
for children to experience plant science and freely explore nature.
From the moment the Adventure Garden opened its doors to the public
in May of 1998 it has been a celebration. In the past 5 years,
the Adventure Garden has become one on the Garden’s great treasures.
Garden is considered to be an innovative and cutting-edge children’s
garden: a 12-acre hands-on indoor/outdoor children’s museum with
its interactive learning landscapes devoted solely to the study
and playful exploration of plant science. You won’t want to miss
any of the fun this month.

all-time favorites like vanilla and chocolate, to exotic flavors
like pistachio and coconut—you have plants to thank for the flavors.
Children participate in special activities like making and tasting
fruity ice cream flavors! Kids top off their Nature’s Ice Cream
Parlor experience by making their own “plant part” sundae adding
different plant treats including nuts, chocolate, berries, and

the Garden for favorite flowers, while learning about the interaction
of plants and animals.
