The Paul Smith Children’s Village is a must-see children’s garden for all ages, even the grown up kind! The garden features a wetlands area, sheepherder wagon, a secret garden, farmers windmill, outdoor giant Jenga and more! Come visit and explore Tuesday through Saturday from 10a.m.- 5p.m., and Sunday from 12p.m. to 5p.m!
We offer fieldtrips for a variety of ages that are approximately 45 minutes in length. Our classroom seats 42 students at one time. If your group exceeds this number we can split you up and rotate outdoor time with indoor classes. Fieldtrip topics are science curriculum based on grade and quarter. Visit our field trip page to view our Field Trip Menu and schedule your field trip today! We start booking school based field trips for the coming school year on July 1.Read more
Drop-in classes are designed for children of all ages. Classes are set up for individuals to just show up and participate. Each class focuses on art, exploration, science, and horticulture. Come join us for some educational mischief!

The Symphony Storytime performance of “Neverland” scheduled for May 16 has been tentatively rescheduled to July 11 due to the impact of anticipated social distancing guidelines.
All youth camps, daycares, school groups, or groups with more than 15 kids, must call to schedule their visits. Note: there must be minimum supervision of one adult (age 19 and over) per every five children in the group.
