Hamilton Children’s Garden

Adventurous kids love to explore Toni’s Tree House in the Hamilton Children’s Garden. You’ll find a cool rope bridge, tunnel and spiral staircase where kids can fine-tune their climbing skills. Creative kiddos can draw on a large chalkboard and find the sounds of nature in the music garden. Take a go at the giant tic-tac-toe and water-lovers can splish-splash in the mountain stream. Your little buds will have a naturally fun time.
