Explore, play and build this summer!

Discover the world of plants through play.

Featuring the work of LEGO® artist Warren Elsmore, families can make LEGO® creations, build and plant their own garden landscape or get creative and decorate a giant LEGO® wall.

Let imaginations come alive through shapes, colours and inventive play, have fun dressing up and enjoy stories from the natural world in our cosy story corner. Find out what bugs do for plants and what we can do for bugs with our mini market garden. And let the adventure continue and head out into the Garden after to discover the magic and wonder of nature.

Open 10.15am – 4.15pm daily in the John Hope Gateway.
