The MSU Horticulture Gardens are actually a family of three gardens: The 4-H Children's Garden is designed especially for children, and is completely handicap accessible. This delightful garden features over 55 themed gardens including the Pizza Garden, Peter Rabbit Herb Garden, Butterfly Garden and ABC Garden. You can also enjoy the Tree House, Creation Station, Amphitheater, Monet Bridge, and the Dance Chimes. There is also an Indoor 4-H Children's Garden with an additional 20 theme gardens where during March and April we host "Butterflies in the Garden." School programs are offered all year long and there is a full schedule of family programs during the summer. A great option to explore during down time between sports events.
