Waisman Center–WECP

Discovery Garden

A special feature of the WECP is a 1.5 acre outdoor learning play space, the Discovery Garden. We have several gardens in our outdoor space, including a Butterfly Garden, Raised Bed Gardens for vegetables and strawberries, and our Potato Circle. Each classroom is responsible for planting and maintaining their garden area.

The Discovery Garden also includes sand and water play areas, climbing equipment, swings and lots of green space for exploring, imagining, and running. In addition, there is a small sledding hill and an in-hill "amphitheater" with stage. The toddler area features a shaded sand area, a mini-climber with slide, and the Blue House. It also includes the WECP Alphabet Garden with child-friendly plants from A to Z.

During good weather, the Waisman Center's Children's Theater conducts several of its weekend programs in the Discovery Garden. Other community education events occur during the year, as well.
