The City's Children's Garden Program:
The Children’s Garden Program provides children, youth and families with an opportunity to participate in hands-on organic gardening activities like planting, maintenance, composting and more!

We have two garden locations: High Park and the Waterfront. School programs are currently offered at the High Park Children’s Garden, which is wheelchair accessible.

School Programs
The City of Toronto invites school groups to visit the garden and participate in hands-on gardening activities.

Programs are suitable for K-8 and last approximately 2 hours. We also offer customized programming for children with special needs.

The Children's Garden Program is available from mid-May to the end of June and from mid-September to early October. Registration is done on a first come first served basis so don't forget to register early! The program cost is $5/child.

Possible Activities Include:

  • Planting and Harvesting
  • Soil Investigation
  • Plant Identification
  • Scavenger Hunts
  • Composting
  • Bug Hunts
  • Garden Crafts
  • Drama and Music

All programs are hands-on, interactive, and reflect Ontario Ministry of Education Curriculum.

Summer Events, Eco Camp and Family Drop-in Programs
The Children's Garden and Exploring Toronto Programs will be hosting a number of drop-in programs and community events, as well as our Eco Camp this summer. Join us for hands-on gardening and nature exploration activities, nature crafts, garden harvest cooking, nature tours, eco-games and live performances.
