Ian Potter Foundation Childrens Garden (Melbourne)




A fantastic garden where children can play, explore, climb, splash, hide and dig. There’s lots of fun places to explore including the Ruin Garden, the Meeting Place (which has a water feature that sprays up out of the ground in summer!), a Wetland Area with a 80cm deep pond, Bamboo Forest, The Gorge, ancient redgum which is nearly 10,000 years old, Plant Tunnel, Kitchen Garden and The Rill (a gentle waterway that runs through the Garden). It is possible to follow tracks through the different habitats. Includes a Magic Pudding Statue.

Review:


A lovely garden for children with plenty of fun places to explore.

It is not possible to have a picnic in the garden but there are plenty of places outside in the Royal Botanic Gardens. The garden is enclosed by a fence with child proof gate. Water tap is available.

The Children’s Garden is located at the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne, Observatory Precinct, Birdwood Avenue, Melbourne.

Parking is a combination of paid parking and free parking on various days and times. If you do a lap around the area you may be able to find some free parking.

Even though the garden is lovely, I would not make a special trip into the city just for the Garden. Combine it with a picnic or some other activity.
