The Gardens at SIUE is a beautiful place to enjoy with children. Each season brings something new, and we encourage families to explore off the beaten path.
We encourage you to explore The Gardens and hope that you venture off path to run in the grass, follow a butterfly or observe a beautiful bloom. At the same time, keep an eye out for plants such as poison ivy and wild rose that may leave their mark.
We ask that you not pick the flowers or make collections of any kind. Explore and enjoy the grounds, but please leave what you find.
Check out our new Ecology in The Gardens; A Walking Tour of The Gardens at SIUE — a fun, new, self-guided exploration tool for families and kids of all ages.
