Free Play at the PlayGarden

Kids of ALL abilities deserve to PLAY! We host Free Play hours to increase access to nature-rich free play opportunities for children, youth and adults with disabilities and their friends and family. Free Play is also a ways for us to connect with community partners and who share in our mission to end the stigma and exclusion of people with disabilities in our community by coming together to offer fun, culturally diverse activities for families to enjoy.

NO fees. NO registration. Just come PLAY!

Thanks for joining us for Free Play this Summer!

Please check back in the Spring for updates about our Summer 2023 schedule.

The garden is open to play and visit any time. Please keep in mind that our preschool is in session M-F from 9am-1pm.

What Happens at Free Play?

You will be greeted by friendly staff that will welcome you, give you a tour, answer your questions, provide information on PlayGarden programs and most importantly, will engage kids of all ages and abilities in inclusive play experiences. Each session offers seasonal and culturally relevant activities such as gardening, cooking classes, music classes, dance, movement activities, art, construction and more!
