Everett Children's Adventure Garden

Year Round

Calling all young explorers! Enter a place made just for you to explore the wonders of science and nature.

Enter an amazing world of mazes, larger-than-life flowers, and hands-on activities, a place made just for kids to explore the wonders of science and nature.

In the Everett Children's Adventure Garden, your eyes, ears, fingers, and nose are the keys to unlocking the mysteries of the plant world. Each season brings new events and exciting discoveries to be made. There's a Boulder Maze for climbing, a Touch Tank for getting up close with water-loving plants, an indoor laboratory for doing experiments and looking through microscopes, and so much more!

For children of all ages.

Teens are invited to apply to intern at the Everett Children's Adventure Garden as part of the Explainer Program.
