We were visiting downtown and were enjoying a walk along the river when we stumbled upon this fun little park. Our kids loved the statues and we enjoyed the break in the shade. So close to good food and shopping.

Excellent layout, selection of ornamentals, edibles and exotics. Proximity to the Swamp Rabbit Trail and downtown is great. Good educational elements, too.

Great place to walk and explore .Children enjoyed finding pictures of favorite storybook characters throughout the garden. Also able to learn to identify different plants. Benches, shaded area to sit and watch your children play on a sunny day.

I've taken my granddaughters to the Children's Garden at Linky Stone Park several times, most recently this summer. Due to the nearby construction, we had to find parking in a ramp a few blocks away. The summer display of flowers is much better than fall...More
