The garden opening coincides with the start of our annual Cheekwood in Bloom spring festival featuring over 150,000 blooms spreading color throughout the estate. We will also be kicking off our expanded pre-kindergarten program, Tots! Now Tuesday through Saturday. Come out for family art and garden activities, storytime, and more from 10 AM – 2 PM.

Tots! Art Activities and Storytime | 10 AM – 2 PM

Local author Jessica Young will be reading from her new book “A Wish is a Seed” at 11 AM, 12 PM, and 1 PM.

The new two-acre Bracken Foundation Children’s Garden brings a one-of-a-kind outdoor experience to Cheekwood. Blending art with nature, the Children’s Garden will be an interactive and educational outdoor experience that celebrates Cheekwood’s legacy and identity through play and discovery.

Designed with families in mind, visitors can explore private garden rooms, secret nooks, hidden spaces and water features, including a Turtle Pond, Wishing Well, Art Studio, Labyrinth, and Adventure Walk designed especially for toddlers with a Tea House, Story Tree, Fairy Garden and more!
