Baton Rouge – The Children’s Garden at the Burden Center offers a great educational experience to kids in the greater Baton Rouge area. Full of flowers and plants of all types, many are labeled and explained to aid the learner of all ages.
A child is welcome to bring a camera and take pictures and document each type of plant and the fruit that it grows, from grapefruit, to apples, from lemons to pears. Small, bright colored picnic tables are spaced in the kid’s garden and watering cans are placed throughout the beautiful space.
The All-American Display’s Garden is immediately next door and provides a broad of array of flowers. Swings are also placed on the sides of the garden to enable relaxed viewing and opportunities to observe plants and listen to the birds sing songs as they pass through.
If you need a place to take your child to view the displays of the beauties of creation and nature, be sure to stop by and spend time at the Children’s Garden off of Essen Ln and I-10.
