Nestled just a few blocks south of Atlantic Ave, our two-plot parcel of land, generously donated by St. Paul's Episcopal Church, now serves as an urban retreat, ripe for exploration and play.
The Delray Beach Children's Garden was created to help children love nature, so that they will grow up to protect and sustain it.
From the start, the founding committee believed that a garden for children should include children in the design and build. Children have been an integral part of creating what the garden has to offer today, from serving as judges at our design charrette, to working as volunteers throughout the build.
So come out with your family to plant and harvest in the Veggie Garden Labyrinth. Sit under the shade of the mango trees and read a book in the Giant Storytelling Chair. Search for the Red Eared Slider turtle in our Fish Pond. Hide in the Twig Tunnel, the Bean Pole Teepee or the Banana Forest. Fetch some water from the well in the Well Wishes Healing Garden, or take an imaginary voyage in our Dream Boat.
Mommy and Me classes, Birthday Parties, Natural Play environments, nature and science education and much more!

We are so grateful to all the volunteers who came to our garden for the LOVE DELRAY community service event today. We had a full garden with more than 25 helpers to plant flowers, hang signs, tidy up our beds and paths, create a twig fence for our carrot garden, decorate for our Island ‘Ting event, install a new shade sail, organize our wood pile and propagation center and finish our twig tunnel design. #DelrayRocks The Avenue Church St. Paul's Episcopal Church
To celebrate the Great Backyard Bird Count 2019, our Bilingual Nature Play class sang and learned about birds. Children learned to recognize the cardinal, the mocking bird, and the woodpecker's song. The kids made upcycled bird feeders for the birds to enjoy in the garden.
