Indoor Children's Garden at Longwood Gardens           Kennett Square, Chester County

Have you met the drooling dragon?  Well, he is at the new Indoor Children's Garden at Longwood Gardens! Take the kiddos to Longwood Gardens Indoor Garden complete with 17 fountains and one-of-a-kind artisan elements, an amazing palette of plants to discover and fun encounters around every corner. Some pretty cool features too. . .

Featuring. . .

  • The Central Cove, with a tree-covered seating area, a central pool with flower-shaped water jets and jewel-like mosaics, and three animal adorned sculptures shooting streams of water from overhead into the pool. Children will move from the Central Cove into the Rain Pavilion, which features water curtains on two sides. Look up and you will see the glass ceiling allowing a view of water running overhead.
  • he Secret Room is home to the Drooling Dragon water feature, and a balcony that overlooks the Central Cove.
  • The Ramp, accented by an ever-changing Water Curtain and animated by the leaping water “glow worm,” leads children to a Tower overlooking the Bamboo Maze. Water runs down the glow worm into a swallowing salamander at the bottom of the ramp.
  • The Grotto Cave, underneath the Tower, contains a shallow fog-covered pool activated by water dripping from sculpted snakes coiled overhead.
  • The Bamboo Maze offers a jungle of tree-size bamboos for children to explore. The Maze contains five visitor-activated water features accented with ornate bird sculptures.

And Don't forget about Nature's Castles. .. that is at Longwood Gardens too!

The garden is handicap accessible. A surrounding walkway allows “grown” children to enjoy the garden as well as keep an eye on the action. With 17 fountains in the garden to enjoy, children will want to splash and play, so an extra shirt or small towel might come in handy.
