Naples Botanical Garden & Smith Children’s Garden

Families can experience a full day of fun at Naples Botanical Garden. Visitors to the garden will find a carefree world full of flowers, butterflies, and secret discoveries. The Naples Botanical Garden offers educational and interactive programs, hands-on activities, and fun events that the entire family will enjoy.

Activities range from a self-guided audio tour to learn about the flora and fauna throughout the Garden to the current exhibition, Steve Tobin: Nature Underground , on view now through September 6, 2021. Throughout the Garden, explore the dramatic steel and bronze sculptures by contemporary sculptor Steve Tobin. This artistic presentation, highlighting Tobin’s famed Roots sculptures, celebrates the wonderfully interconnected world that lies under the soil, and allows us to appreciate the hidden beauty of roots in a whole new way.

For an engaging, hands-on experience, families can pick up a W.O.N.D.E.R. activity pack located at the Eleanor and Nicholas Chabraja Visitor Center. (W.O.N.D.E.R. stands for “Walk. Observe. Navigate. Draw. Explore. Read.” ).

Each pack is centered around a monthly theme and features a Garden map, craft, activity page (includes a word search, PlantLib, word scramble, maze, and recommended readings), a Junior Nature Journal, and craft supplies, plus a small pack of colored pencils.

A highlight of the W.O.N.D.E.R. activity pack is the Root Route for Sprouts, an exciting scavenger hunt throughout Tobin’s exhibition. Weave your way through the Garden, and answer questions about Tobin’s innovative sculptures. A singalong dance accessible through a QR code is also included in the Root Route for Sprouts to get the whole family moving and grooving throughout the exhibition.
