  • Whimsical, well-crafted gardens offer a welcome oasis. Look for special events and experience the Gardens after-hours in an adult setting, too!  more »

  • What a place! Donations only. Spent 2.5 hours here with 2 gkids. Tons of stuff to look at. Read books on the spot about the scenery. Paths and paths, the kids didn't know which way to go. It was fun to watch. And if you love flowers and plants there is a huge amount to look at.
  • Absolutely amazing! I can't believe this place is free!!! The plantings are so well executed. My hats off to those who did the design planning and everyone who donated to make it possible. My only wish would be more options at the gift shop of Bookworm Garden items.
  • Driving through Sheboygan with our 17 month old granddaughter and stopped by the Garden on a recommendation from our waitress. What a gem! Our granddaughter loved it. Wish we had gotten there earlier. The museum had already closed. Hope to make it back some day!
  • This is a really neat place. It's not necessarily a garden, but it's a landscaped adventure through different areas that are designed based off of children's books. They do have lots of plants, and it is surrounded by woods. It's a very pretty and neat place, plus there are a ton of interactive features and areas for young kids. It gets pretty busy so be prepared to move around people. Also you can bring a stroller (as we did) but you have to navigate around people and some tough terrain.
  • What a FUN place for kids and grownups! There's something fun to look at and explore around every corner. Such much thought put into every design! Lots of interactive things to do. We visited from out of town- what a treasure to have in your community!
