Things to See and Do in Michigan 4-H Children’s Garden

The 4-H Children’s Garden encourages learning through their fifty-five themed gardens.

One of our favorite gardens was the Pizza Garden, where we found everything it takes to make pizza.

The six feet in diameter garden, with a mysteriously missing slice, has concrete “crust” edges embossed with circles representing pepperoni.

Two of my favorites are the Lesson’s Learned sculpture to the left after entering the garden.


A bronze sculpture of a boy seated on a bench reading a book includes a whimsical bird perched on an open page.

Another favorite is the Young-Girl sculpture at the Secret Garden. A wrought iron bench in the space was the perfect place to sit in luxurious solitude, enjoy the statue, and reflect.

My daughter read Peter Rabbit as a bedtime story the night before we visited the garden. The Peter Rabbit Garden features statues of Peter and his mother.

From the Secret Garden, a large gate swings open to a maze formed by tall evergreen trees. The feeling that adventure awaits just around the corner as we wandered through the maze added to the fun.
