Franklin Children's Gardens

What a great place! The Franklin Children's Gardens is a themed garden based on characters from "Franklin the Turtle" stories.

There are many bronze statues of Franklin's friends, small benches in the garden and many plants and paths for kids to explore. There is even a turtle pond! Next to the turtle pond there are two tables with pictures of frogs and turtles painted on them and you can also find a large wooden (carved) owl nearby.

Franklin Children's Garden

Kids can climb up a hill on a serpentine path - on top of the hill there is a lookout point with binoculars that are low enough for children to reach and no coins are needed to use them. Children can also play in a wooden playhouse, in the kids garden or enjoy storytime at the Storybook Place amphitheatre.
