The children’s garden at Altoona’s Enabling Garden is designed to engage children’s five senses with natural playscapes.
After much work by volunteers at the Enabling Garden, the children’s garden was completed in 2015 and is ready for your visit.
The garden and playscape are both free and open to the public.
Visit the garden at 1050 1st Ave S, Altoona, IA 50009.
