The Children’s Garden has become one of the major attractions at Red Butte Gardens. Three unique outdoor environments scaled for children make learning about plants and horticulture a pleasurable, memorable experience. The Adventure Garden features a snake topiary maze and the Sun Fountain, an on-grade water feature that magically squirts as children walk by.
The snake fountain is at the entry to the topiary maze and offers another opportunity for children to touch the water elements. By crossing a bridge, children enter a world of possibilities in the Exploratory Garden, where a small wetland frames a grotto veiled by a thin curtain of water.
