Weekend Nature Play | Children’s Garden
Follow the Valley Chimney to the best place in Toronto to explore, experience and play with nature.
Join us this season to explore our child-designed gathering spaces, green infrastructure, raised garden beds growing fruits and vegetables, and our climbing and water play features. All surrounded by the magic of the old brick factory.
Designed to showcase and make available to the public the many benefits of place based outdoor play and learning, the Children’s Garden offers play and stewardship-based opportunities for children and families of all ages.
Here, children and caregivers have the chance to engage in active, inclusive and hands-on activities while cultivating a lifelong stewardship ethic. It is truly a place like no other!
Weekend Nature Play in the Children’s Garden is built to create a safe, inclusive and enjoyable experience for all. This includes modified capacity and additional cleaning and supervision protocols.
To ensure visitor safety, the Children’s Garden will be operating at a limited capacity to ensure physical distancing.
In order to ensure this space is accessible to the greatest number of visitors while keeping everyone safe, we kindly ask families to limit their visits from 30 minutes to an hour. Visitors will be asked to line-up and will be welcomed on a first come first serve basis as capacity will be determined based on public health rules and regulations.
