For young explorers, there are dozens of free daily programs in the Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden, where there are opportunities to learn about plants, insects, ecosystems and more in an engaging and interactive way. Plus, 8,000 feet of overhead misters, shaded gazebos and the learning rich, air-conditioned Exploration Center provides the perfect relief from the summer sun.

Family Fun Fridays, presented by Kimberly-Clark, also return in the Main Garden with crowd favorite Country Critters petting zoo, story time and bubble picnics in the Pecan Grove.
