Children’s Secret Adventure Garden at Columbus Botanical Garden Columbus, Georgia
The Columbus Botanical Garden occupies a unique rolling landscape not far from downtown Columbus. Fortunate to build upon a framework of historic structures, the master plan celebrates the heritage of Southern Gardens. A gradient of garden development radiates from the historic farmhouse building, organized on a visual axis with the hilltop meadow garden. More formalized gardens are associated with the farmstead to the east, with an enhanced natural woodland walk to the west, culminating in an immersive natural experience along a wetland and creek corridor. The Children’s Garden will expand the existing Gin House program as an educational and fun destination for families. Enhanced woodland garden walks will introduce visitors to native species.
