The WOW Children’s Garden offers opportunities for learning and exploration for family members of all ages. Splash through the world in our global-themed fountains, see edible plants on Discovery Peak, and take a nature walk through our Plant Safari habitat gardens. Opportunities include staff-guided and family-guided activities. Plus, during the holidays don’t miss our NBG Express, a family program that includes a magical tram ride through the Dominion Garden of Lights.
